ActiveRecord Without Rails

Just a simple example of using ActiveRecord migrations without Rails

tasks you can do:

  • rake db:create
  • rake db:migrate
  • rake db:drop

Notes for Rails 5+

  • Note that even with Rails 5, you'll need to rake db:migrate rather than rails db:migrate
  • When you create a migration, it should inherit from ActiveRecord::Migration[5.2]

Customizing path to migrations

The Rakefile expects you to have your migrations in db/migrat4, but if you want in a different location, edit it:

#... snip
ActiveRecord::Migrator.migrate("lib/db/migrations/")

Prove that it works:

You can run the thing to show that it'll connect

ruby ar-no-rails

Output:

Count of Pages: 0

Lastly, you can IRB it to do stuff:

$ irb

>> require "./ar-no-rails"
=> true
>> Page.new
=> #<Page id: nil, content: nil, published: false>
>> Page.create content: "the-content"
=> #<Page id: 1, content: "the-content", published: false>
