Rails Default Database

Tired of cp config/database.example.yml config/database.yml? Me too. That's why I wrote this Gem. Simply add this line to your Gemfile and PostgreSQL, MySQL, or SQLite3 (depending on which of the 3 is in your Gemfile) will be automatically configured with Rails defaults:

gem 'rails-default-database'

You can still override the defaults by creating config/database.yml. Use rake db:config to create config/database.yml with the defaults that would have been assumed.
