Schema dump fix and database task creation improvements!

Posted by gregmolnar, July 6, 2019 @ 12:00 am in News

Hi there. This is Greg bringing you latest news from the Rails world. We had a quiet week, so I won’t take long.

Fix schema dumping for enum and set columns in MySQL

With this change Active Record will use the sql_type rather than type, in the database dump for enum and set columns to make sure they use the correct type.

Warn if database tasks can’t be created

With this change, Rails loads the initial database.yml once, and warns if it can’t create tasks. This is important for multiple databases, where the tasks are created for every database, but to create those Rails needs to read the list from database.yml.

Until next time!
