Adds an html endpoint to your Rails application which will give you a quick display of your database schema and contents for reference at
Demo available at http://rails-db-info-demo.herokuapp.com
Add this to the development group in your Gemfile
group :development do gem 'rails_db_info' end
http://localhost:3000/rails/info/db and you will see your database schema and values.
For users of catch-all routes
If (and only if) you have catch all routes like
get '*path' => 'your_controller#your_action' in your app already, you can manually add rails_db_info to your routes (config/routes.rb) before the catch-all routes like this.
if Rails.env.development? mount_rails_db_info as: 'rails_db_info_engine' # mount_rails_db_info is enough for rails version < 4 end get '*path' => 'your_controller#your_action'
Todo / Ideas
- Improve CSS
- Add small bar (like miniprofiler has) at top of the page or add key listener(s). When triggered it would show database info. For example you are working on UsersController and when you press Cmd+D users table info slides down.
- Generator to copy assets in case asset pipeline is disabled
