Enumerations in migrations

Is there a way to do enumerations in migrations?

I.E. color(red, black, blue, green, etc)

take a look at the “enum-column” plugin

http://rubyforge.org/projects/enum-column/
http://wiki.rubyonrails.com/rails/pages/Enum+Column+in+MySql

think this is what I used before,
and there was an update in January 2008,
so hopefully it still works with Rails2.

eg.
t.column :color, :enum, :limit => [:red, :blue, :green, :yellow]

don’t know if it’ll support sexy migrations

t.enum :color, :limit => [:red, :blue, :green, :yellow]

I tried using the sexy migrations and it didn’t seem to work. Is there
something I need to install before using this?
