#add_column(table_name, column_name, type, options = {}) ⇒ Object

Adds a new column to the named table. See TableDefinition#column for details of the options you can use.

def add_column(table_name, column_name, type, options = {})
  at = create_alter_table table_name
  at.add_column(column_name, type, options)
  execute schema_creation.accept at
end

#add_index(table_name, column_name, options = {}) ⇒ Object

Adds a new index to the table. column_name can be a single Symbol, or an Array of Symbols.

The index will be named after the table and the column name(s), unless you pass :name as an option.

Creating a simple index
add_index(:suppliers, :name)

generates:

CREATE INDEX suppliers_name_index ON suppliers(name)
Creating a unique index
add_index(:accounts, [:branch_id, :party_id], unique: true)

generates:

CREATE UNIQUE INDEX accounts_branch_id_party_id_index ON accounts(branch_id, party_id)
Creating a named index
add_index(:accounts, [:branch_id, :party_id], unique: true, name: 'by_branch_party')

generates:

CREATE UNIQUE INDEX by_branch_party ON accounts(branch_id, party_id)
Creating an index with specific key length
add_index(:accounts, :name, name: 'by_name', length: 10)

generates:

CREATE INDEX by_name ON accounts(name(10))

add_index(:accounts, [:name, :surname], name: 'by_name_surname', length: {name: 10, surname: 15})

generates:

CREATE INDEX by_name_surname ON accounts(name(10), surname(15))

Note: SQLite doesn't support index length.

Creating an index with a sort order (desc or asc, asc is the default)
add_index(:accounts, [:branch_id, :party_id, :surname], order: {branch_id: :desc, party_id: :asc})

generates:

CREATE INDEX by_branch_desc_party ON accounts(branch_id DESC, party_id ASC, surname)

Note: MySQL doesn't yet support index order (it accepts the syntax but ignores it).

Creating a partial index
add_index(:accounts, [:branch_id, :party_id], unique: true, where: "active")

generates:

CREATE UNIQUE INDEX index_accounts_on_branch_id_and_party_id ON accounts(branch_id, party_id) WHERE active
Creating an index with a specific method
add_index(:developers, :name, using: 'btree')

generates:

CREATE INDEX index_developers_on_name ON developers USING btree (name) -- PostgreSQL
CREATE INDEX index_developers_on_name USING btree ON developers (name) -- MySQL

Note: only supported by PostgreSQL and MySQL

Creating an index with a specific type
add_index(:developers, :name, type: :fulltext)

generates:

CREATE FULLTEXT INDEX index_developers_on_name ON developers (name) -- MySQL

Note: only supported by MySQL. Supported: :fulltext and :spatial on MyISAM tables.

end

#add_reference(table_name, ref_name, options = {}) ⇒ Object Also known as: add_belongs_to

Adds a reference. Optionally adds a type column, if :polymorphic option is provided. add_reference and add_belongs_to are acceptable.

Create a user_id column
add_reference(:products, :user)
Create a supplier_id and supplier_type columns
add_belongs_to(:products, :supplier, polymorphic: true)
Create a supplier_id, supplier_type columns and appropriate index
add_reference(:products, :supplier, polymorphic: true, index: true)

#change_column(table_name, column_name, type, options = {}) ⇒ Object

Changes the column's definition according to the new options. See TableDefinition#column for details of the options you can use.

change_column(:suppliers, :name, :string, limit: 80)
change_column(:accounts, :description, :text)

Raises:

end

#change_column_default(table_name, column_name, default) ⇒ Object

Sets a new default value for a column:

change_column_default(:suppliers, :qualification, 'new')
change_column_default(:accounts, :authorized, 1)

Setting the default to nil effectively drops the default:

change_column_default(:users, :email, nil)

Raises:

  • (NotImplementedError)

def change_column_default(table_name, column_name, default)
  raise NotImplementedError, "change_column_default is not implemented"
end

#change_column_null(table_name, column_name, null, default = nil) ⇒ Object

Sets or removes a NOT NULL constraint on a column. The null flag indicates whether the value can be NULL. For example

change_column_null(:users, :nickname, false)

says nicknames cannot be NULL (adds the constraint), whereas

change_column_null(:users, :nickname, true)

allows them to be NULL (drops the constraint).

The method accepts an optional fourth argument to replace existing NULLs with some other value. Use that one when enabling the constraint if needed, since otherwise those rows would not be valid.

Please note the fourth argument does not set a column's default.

Raises:

  • (NotImplementedError)

#change_table(table_name, options = {}) ⇒ Object

A block for changing columns in table.

# change_table() yields a Table instance
change_table(:suppliers) do |t|
  t.column :name, :string, limit: 60
  # Other column alterations here
end

The options hash can include the following keys:

:bulk

Set this to true to make this a bulk alter query, such as

ALTER TABLE `users` ADD COLUMN age INT(11), ADD COLUMN birthdate DATETIME ...

Defaults to false.

Add a column
change_table(:suppliers) do |t|
  t.column :name, :string, limit: 60
end
Add 2 integer columns
change_table(:suppliers) do |t|
  t.integer :width, :height, null: false, default: 0
end
Add created_at/updated_at columns
change_table(:suppliers) do |t|
  t.timestamps
end
Add a foreign key column
change_table(:suppliers) do |t|
  t.references :company
end

Creates a company_id(integer) column.

Add a polymorphic foreign key column
change_table(:suppliers) do |t|
  t.belongs_to :company, polymorphic: true
end

Creates company_type(varchar) and company_id(integer) columns.

Remove a column
change_table(:suppliers) do |t|
  t.remove :company
end
Remove several columns
change_table(:suppliers) do |t|
  t.remove :company_id
  t.remove :width, :height
end

#columns_for_distinct(columns, orders) ⇒ Object

Given a set of columns and an ORDER BY clause, returns the columns for a SELECT DISTINCT. Both PostgreSQL and Oracle overrides this for custom DISTINCT syntax - they require the order columns appear in the SELECT.

columns_for_distinct("posts.id", ["posts.created_at desc"])

#create_join_table(table_1, table_2, options = {}) ⇒ Object

Creates a new join table with the name created using the lexical order of the first two arguments. These arguments can be a String or a Symbol.

# Creates a table called 'assemblies_parts' with no id.
create_join_table(:assemblies, :parts)

You can pass a options hash can include the following keys:

:table_name

Sets the table name overriding the default

:column_options

Any extra options you want appended to the columns definition.

:options

Any extra options you want appended to the table definition.

:temporary

Make a temporary table.

:force

Set to true to drop the table before creating it. Defaults to false.

Note that create_join_table does not create any indices by default; you can use its block form to do so yourself:

create_join_table :products, :categories do |t|
  t.index :product_id
  t.index :category_id
end
Add a backend specific option to the generated SQL (MySQL)
create_join_table(:assemblies, :parts, options: 'ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8')

generates:

CREATE TABLE assemblies_parts (
  assembly_id int NOT NULL,
  part_id int NOT NULL,
) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8

  end
end

#create_table(table_name, options = {}) {|td| ... } ⇒ Object

Creates a new table with the name table_name. table_name may either be a String or a Symbol.

There are two ways to work with create_table. You can use the block form or the regular form, like this:

Block form

# create_table() passes a TableDefinition object to the block.
# This form will not only create the table, but also columns for the
# table.

create_table(:suppliers) do |t|
  t.column :name, :string, limit: 60
  # Other fields here
end

Block form, with shorthand

# You can also use the column types as method calls, rather than calling the column method.
create_table(:suppliers) do |t|
  t.string :name, limit: 60
  # Other fields here
end

Regular form

# Creates a table called 'suppliers' with no columns.
create_table(:suppliers)
# Add a column to 'suppliers'.
add_column(:suppliers, :name, :string, {limit: 60})

The options hash can include the following keys:

:id

Whether to automatically add a primary key column. Defaults to true. Join tables for has_and_belongs_to_many should set it to false.

:primary_key

The name of the primary key, if one is to be added automatically. Defaults to id. If :id is false this option is ignored.

Also note that this just sets the primary key in the table. You additionally need to configure the primary key in the model via self.primary_key=. Models do NOT auto-detect the primary key from their table definition.

:options

Any extra options you want appended to the table definition.

:temporary

Make a temporary table.

:force

Set to true to drop the table before creating it. Defaults to false.

Add a backend specific option to the generated SQL (MySQL)
create_table(:suppliers, options: 'ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8')

generates:

CREATE TABLE suppliers (
  id int(11) DEFAULT NULL auto_increment PRIMARY KEY
) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8
Rename the primary key column
create_table(:objects, primary_key: 'guid') do |t|
  t.column :name, :string, limit: 80
end

generates:

CREATE TABLE objects (
  guid int(11) DEFAULT NULL auto_increment PRIMARY KEY,
  name varchar(80)
)
Do not add a primary key column
create_table(:categories_suppliers, id: false) do |t|
  t.column :category_id, :integer
  t.column :supplier_id, :integer
end

generates:

CREATE TABLE categories_suppliers (
  category_id int,
  supplier_id int
)

See also TableDefinition#column for details on how to create columns.

Drops a table from the database.

Although this command ignores options and the block if one is given, it can be helpful to provide these in a migration's change method so it can be reverted. In that case, options and the block will be used by create_table.
