This plugin Adds the Postgres column type Hstore to your system. You already have to have set up your databse to use this column type.


To use it, add it to your Gemfile:

gem 'activerecord-postgres-hstore-core', '~> 0.0.6'


ActiveRecordHstoreCore uses Rspec tests on both the serialization and the database. To test it, run

rake spec


This is a stripped down version of the module at

I have made it “more better” by removing the spurious rails install, removing the unneeded railtie, and added actual database tests.
