Code Documentation


Minimum requirements are:

  1. Rails 4.0.0+
  2. Ruby 2.0.0+


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'uniqueness'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install uniqueness


Adds random field support to Rails models.

To auto-generate a new random string for field foo:

class Example < ActiveRecord::Base
  has_unique_field :foo

You can customize the generated string by passing an options hash. The following keys are supported:

:length number of characters, defaults to 32

:type type of string, defaults to :hash and can be one of: :human, :hash

:blacklist characters to exclude when generating the random string, defaults to []


After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to rubygems.org.


Please see CONTRIBUTING.md for details.
