ActiveArchive is a library for preventing database records from being destroyed.
NOTE: version >= '6.0.0' has a breaking change with the migration timestamps, initializer options, and model/record callbacks.
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install active_archive
Table of Contents
rails g active_archive:install will generate the following file:
. do |config| config.all_records_archivable = false end
To work properly, models which could be archived must have column
archived_at with type
datetime. If the model table has not this column, record will be destroy instead of archived.
For adding this column, you can use this migration, as example:
class AddArchivedAtColumns < ActiveRecord::Migration def change # Adds archived_at automatically t. # Does NOT add archived_at automatically t. archive: false # Manual column add_column :your_model, :archived_at, :datetime end end
User.first.archive #=> archives User record and dependents User.first.unarchive #=> unarchives User record and dependents User.first.to_archival #=> returns archival state string User.archive_all #=> archives all User records and dependents User.unarchive_all #=> unarchives all User record and dependents
User.archived.all #=> returns only archived record User.unarchived.all #=> returns only unarchived record
