require 'active_support/core_ext/hash/indifferent_access'
module ActiveRecord
# Store gives you a thin wrapper around serialize for the purpose of storing hashes in a single column.
# It's like a simple key/value store baked into your record when you don't care about being able to
# query that store outside the context of a single record.
#
# You can then declare accessors to this store that are then accessible just like any other attribute
# of the model. This is very helpful for easily exposing store keys to a form or elsewhere that's
# already built around just accessing attributes on the model.
#
# Make sure that you declare the database column used for the serialized store as a text, so there's
# plenty of room.
#
# You can set custom coder to encode/decode your serialized attributes to/from different formats.
# JSON, YAML, Marshal are supported out of the box. Generally it can be any wrapper that provides +load+ and +dump+.
#
# Examples:
#
# class User < ActiveRecord::Base
# store :settings, accessors: [ :color, :homepage ], coder: JSON
# end
#
# u = User.new(color: 'black', homepage: '37signals.com')
# u.color # Accessor stored attribute
# u.settings[:country] = 'Denmark' # Any attribute, even if not specified with an accessor
#
# # There is no difference between strings and symbols for accessing custom attributes
# u.settings[:country] # => 'Denmark'
# u.settings['country'] # => 'Denmark'
#
# # Add additional accessors to an existing store through store_accessor
# class SuperUser < User
# store_accessor :settings, :privileges, :servants
# end
#
# The stored attribute names can be retrieved using +stored_attributes+.
#
# User.stored_attributes[:settings] # [:color, :homepage]
#
# == Overwriting default accessors
#
# All stored values are automatically available through accessors on the Active Record
# object, but sometimes you want to specialize this behavior. This can be done by overwriting
# the default accessors (using the same name as the attribute) and calling <tt>super</tt>
# to actually change things.
#
# class Song < ActiveRecord::Base
# # Uses a stored integer to hold the volume adjustment of the song
# store :settings, accessors: [:volume_adjustment]
#
# def volume_adjustment=(decibels)
# super(decibels.to_i)
# end
#
# def volume_adjustment
# super.to_i
# end
# end
