IceCube and Rails

Andrew Vit edited this page · 5 revisions

If you are using Bundler include ice_cube by adding gem 'ice_cube' to your Gemfile and running bundle install.

For convenience, you may add include IceCube inside the top of your ActiveRecord model to access the IceCube classes more easily without needing to prefix the IceCube:: namespace.

For example:

class Task < ActiveRecord::Base
  include IceCube

  def schedule
    Schedule.new(start_date) do |s|
      s.add_recurrence_rule Rule.daily(1).count(7)
    end
  end
end

To save and reload your schedule in ActiveRecord with the attribute name 'schedule', you should set up a TEXT database column and add the serializer for the column name:

class Task < ActiveRecord::Base
  serialize :schedule, IceCube::Schedule
end

This will save your schedule in YAML format.
