Mongoid Sequence

Mongoid Sequence allows you to specify fields to behave like a sequence number (exactly like the "id" column in conventional SQL flavors).

Credits

This gem was inspired by a couple of gists by masatomo and ShogunPanda.

Usage

Include Mongoid::Sequence in your class and call sequence(:field).

Like this:

class Sequenced
    include Mongoid::Document
    include Mongoid::Sequence

    field :my_sequence, :type => Integer
    sequence :my_sequence
end

s1 = Sequenced.create
s1.sequence #=> 1

s2 = Sequenced.create
s2.sequence #=> 2 # and so on

It's also possible to make the id field behave like this:

class Sequenced
    include Mongoid::Document
    include Mongoid::Sequence

    sequence :_id
end

s1 = Sequenced.create
s1.id #=> 1

s2 = Sequenced.create
s2.id #=> 2 # and so on

Consistency

Mongoid::Sequence uses the atomic findAndModify command, so you shouldn't have to worry about the sequence's consistency.

Installation

Just add it to your projects' Gemfile:

gem "mongoid-sequence"
