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
