Gem Version GitHub issues

Welcome to your new gem! In this directory, you'll find the files you need to be able to package up your Ruby library into a gem. Put your Ruby code in the file lib/dry_serialization. To experiment with that code, run bin/console for an interactive prompt.

TODO: Delete this and the text above, and describe your gem


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'dry_serialization'

And then execute:

$ bundle install

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install dry_serialization


  • Install with rails generator

    rails g dry_serialization:<serializer_name>:install

  • This gem will assume you have an api controller, and create one if you do not. This is to further keep the api separate from the web controllers.

    • The inclusion of the module corresponding to your chosen serializer gem will give you access to #serialized_resource.
    • The #serialized_resource method also takes an optional 'options' hash. For jsonapi-serializer, that can come in the form of the include hash and/or meta or any of the other options available through that gem. Please see their documentation for all options.
    • Similarly for blueprinter it will also take an optional options hash. Again, please see the official documentation in their repo. ruby user = User.find(params[:id]) render json: serialized_resource(user, UserSerializer) # UserSerializer can be substituted with UserBlueprint if that is the gem you've chosen.
  • SerializationHelper

    • This module provides success and error response helper methods.
    • In your controller you can use them like so: ```ruby def create user = User.create(create_user_params) return error_response(user.errors) unless user.errors.empty?

    success_response(user, UserSerializer, :created) end

    - Both methods take an optional argument for the status. You can either use the symbol representation or the number code.


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.
