Instructions

Allow you to easily specify default values for attributes on new model objects. Eg:

class Person < ActiveRecord::Base
  defaults :country => 'New Zealand', :type => 'Unknown', :address => proc { Address.new }

  default :last_name do |person|
    person.first_name
  end
end

The default value is only used if the attribute is not present in the attributes hash.

See active_record_defaults.rb for full documentation.
