UuidIds

A simple gem to make it easy to use UUIDs as the id for Rails models.

Gem Version Build Status Code Climate Coverage Status Dependency Status

Your table creation migration should look something like this:

    create_table :things, :id => false do |t|
      t.binary :id, :primary_key => true, :null => false
      t.timestamps
    end
    add_index :things, :id, :unique => true

binary type is your best bet as it will be put into schema.db correctly.

Then inside of your model just do this:

include UuidIds::ModelHelper

If you need to you can set the id outside of the model. If there is a collision (and you have a unique index) then an exception will be raised and it's up to your app to handle that. If you don't have a unique index and there is a collision you'll have two objects with the same id.

This project rocks and uses MIT-LICENSE.
