Another week went by and here we are again, this is Greg with the latest news from the Rails community.
36 amazing people helped to make Rails even better this week! Thanks everyone!
Interview with Rails Core team members about early days of their Rails contribution, Rails team, Brazil Rails community, their day to day tools of choice and workflow, and how everyone can help out with Rails.
belongs_to relations will now trigger a validation error by default if the association is not present.
If you wish, you can turn this off with the
optional: true option per association.
validate! was part of Active Record, but with this commit you can use it on any Active Model object!
From now on, you can set a
limit for your
bigint type primary keys in MySQL.
Collections automatically use a
read_multi for partials starting with a cache call from now on, which makes them faster.
User.model_name.to_json would result in an infinite recursion, because
.as_json from Object.
This commit delegates
as_json to the correct handler to fix that.
MySQL doesn’t have a
boolean datatype, it uses a
tinyint with a
limit option, so if we dumped the schema from MySQL we couldn’t load it to Postgres since
limit is invalid for Postgres booleans. This patch fixes that by not adding the
skip_around_action will raise an
ArgumentError if the callback doesn’t exist, so using
skip_action_callback, which calls all three methods will probably fail, therefore it became deprecated.
