= HasDetails
HasDetails allows you to store a large amount of (optional) attributes for any model's instance in a serialized column. It takes care of adding convenience methods to your model, and verifies that the value being assigned is indeed (one of) the type(s) required for that attribute.
= Example
class User << ActiveRecord::Base
has_details :firstname => String,
:lastname => String,
:birthday => Date,
:gender => [:male, :female]
end
john = User.find(1)
john.birthday = 5.years.ago
john.gender
=> :male
