Overview

TypecastedAttributes allows types to be declared for your attributes

Types are declared by passing the :type option to the attribute class method. After a type is declared, attribute readers will convert any assigned attribute value to the declared type. If the assigned value cannot be cast, nil will be returned instead. You can access the original assigned value using the before_type_cast methods.

See Typecasting for the currently supported types.
