This Week in Rails - June 16, 2023

Posted by zzak

Hi, it’s zzak. We’re officially half-way through June, and we’ve got a shorter edition this week but let’s hop in.

Enable force_ssl=true in production by default
This PR affects newly generated apps to make SSL enforcement the default behavior in production mode, ensuring all access to the application occurs over SSL, with Strict-Transport-Security and use secure cookies.

Adding PG enum drop, rename, add value, rename value
Initially opened over a year ago, this PR has finally been merged and adds rename_enum, rename_enum_value, and add_enum_value support to the PostgreSQL adapter.

Fix setting inverses for composite primary key associations
This bug fix for models using the inverse_of option which caused the related record not to be saved when using composite primary keys.

Fix “destroy_all” for “has_many through:” associations that points to a CPK model
Another bug fix for composite primary keys was affecting destroy_all when using the has_many through: association that points to a model with composite primary key.

Store “secret_key_base” in “Rails.config” for local environments.
Since secrets have been deprecated in favor of credentials, this PR removes the last dependency for local environments by using Rails.config.secret_key_base instead of Rails.application.secrets.secret_key_base.

Deprecate calling “Rails.application.secrets”
With the last PR merged a deprecation warning will now show up when you call Rails.application.secrets, instead you should use Rails.application.credentials.

Use cache “:coder” option to specify “:message_pack”
This PR removes the unreleased :message_pack option from config.active_support.cache_format_version and instead provides a new :coder option to the config.cache_store flag.

You can view the whole list of changes here.
We had 24 contributors to the Rails codebase this past week!

Until next time!
