Readme.md

Explicit soft deletion for ActiveRecord via deleted_at + callbacks and optional default scope.
Not overwriting destroy or delete.

Install

gem install soft_deletion

Usage

require 'soft_deletion'

class User < ActiveRecord::Base
  has_soft_deletion :default_scope => true

  before_soft_delete :validate_deletability # soft_delete stops if this returns false
  after_soft_delete :send_deletion_emails

  has_many :products
end

# soft delete them including all soft-deletable dependencies that are marked as :destroy, :delete_all, :nullify
user = User.first
user.products.count == 10
user.soft_delete!
user.deleted? # true

# use special with_deleted scope to find them ...
user.reload # ActiveRecord::RecordNotFound
User.with_deleted do
  user.reload # there it is ...
  user.products.count == 0
end

# soft undelete them all
user.soft_undelete!
user.products.count == 10

# soft delete many
User.soft_delete_all!(1,2,3,4)

TODO

  • nullify should use update_all on has_many on soft_delete (performance)
  • has_many :through should delete join associations on soft_delete
  • cascading soft_deletes should use the same timestamp for easy reverts
