Make any ActiveRecord model paranoid by just including
Immortal, and instead of being deleted from the database, the object will just marked as 'deleted' with a boolean field in the database.
Add the gem dependency to your Gemfile:
class User < ActiveRecord::Base include Immortal end
And add a boolean field called
deleted to that model:
class AddDeletedToUsers < ActiveRecord::Migration def self.up add_column :users, :deleted, :boolean end def self.down remove_column :users, :deleted end end
- Add documentation in the code
