Rails Default Database
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:
You can still override the defaults by creating
rake db:config to create
config/database.yml with the defaults
that would have been assumed.
The default database name is based on the name of the root directory of your
application. This can be overridden by setting
config.database_name = 'foo_%s' in
a placeholder for the current environment name.
As in standard Rails, the
DATABASE_URL environment variable takes
precedence when defined. However, in the test environment, Rails Default
Database will append
_test to the database name (after stripping an optional
existing environment suffix), ensuring the development (or production!)
database is never clobbered. This enables storing your database configuration
.env, if you so choose.
