PeriodicCounter

Maintains period fields on any counter column in your database

Requirements

sudo gem install periodic_template

Create columns

You should already have a counter column defined that is being incremented by something (let's call the column X).

Define period columns using this format: X_last_week or X_last_6_hours.

The period name should follow the format of ActiveSupport's time extensions.

Also add a counter_data varchar column with a length of 2048.

Create configuration

Create a file, config/counters.yml:

my_table_name:
  - my_counter

The plugin assumes that the config directory also houses your database.yml file.

Create cron entry

Add the following command to your crontab at a period of your choosing:

cd /path/to/your/app && RAILS_ENV=production periodic_counter
