Overview

This provides an API to easily use ActiveRecord with multiple connections - for example:

  • Reading from slaves
  • Using multiple shards

Usage

module MyDB
  class Widget < ActiveRecord::Base; end
  include MyStuff::MultiDB
end

MyDB.with_spec(:adapter => 'sqlite3', :database => ':memory:') do |db,spec|
  db::Widget.create(...)
end

How It Works

For every spec, it defines a new sub-module of MyStuff::MultiDB, which encodes the database details, and creates new subclasses of your ActiveRecord::Base classes, within these modules. For example:

$ bin/my_stuff-multidb-unmangle MyStuff::MultiDB::MYSTUFF_MULTIDB_DB_216c6f63616c686f7374213333303621::MyDB::Widget
MyStuff::MultiDB::<localhost:3306/>::MyDB::Widget
$

There's also lots of deep voodoo making the ActiveRecord stack use the right connection details :)

Caveats

You can not do cross-shard operations simply, eg joins.
