Multitenant

Build a Rails multitenancy application with PostgreSQL schemas.

Example usage

class Tenant < ActiveRecord::Base
  set_table_name 'public.tenants'
  validates_presence_of :schema_name
  validates_uniqueness_of :schema_name

  after_create :setup_schema

  private
    def setup_schema
      unless Multitenant::SchemaUtils.schema_exists?(schema_name)
        Multitenant::SchemaUtils.create_schema(schema_name)
        Multitenant::SchemaUtils.load_schema_into_schema(schema_name)
      end
    end
end

Multitenant.with_tenant current_tenant do
  # queries within this block are automatically
  # scoped to the current tenant
  User.all

  # new objects created within this block are automatically
  # assigned to the current tenant
  User.create :name => 'Bob'
end

Features

  • Rails 3 compatible

  • Restrict database queries to only lookup objects for the current tenant

  • Utility tools for creating, migrating and accessing schemas

Contributing

  • Check out the latest master to make sure the feature hasn't been implemented or the bug hasn't been fixed yet

  • Check out the issue tracker to make sure someone already hasn't requested it and/or contributed it

  • Fork the project

  • Start a feature/bugfix branch

  • Commit and push until you are happy with your contribution

  • Make sure to add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Please try not to mess with the Rakefile, version, or history. If you want to have your own version, or is otherwise necessary, that is fine, but please isolate to its own commit so I can cherry-pick around it.
