Add has_fields into your models:

ruby class User < ActiveRecord::Base has_fields do string :name integer :login_count end end

Fire in console:

rake db:migrate

To keep some system tables add to config/application.rb

config.automigration.system_tables += %w[hits very_system_table]

Supported fields:

  • belongs_to
  • boolean
  • date
  • datetime
  • decimal
  • float
  • integer
  • string

By default in models with has_fields always columns updated_at and created_at created. To ignore use has_fields(:timestamps => false)
