I’ve been listening to the discussions regarding the plans to eliminate
push_with_attributes. While I think it’s good practice to make join
if you’re developing a new system, I can’t help but think t hat
push_with_attributes should be left around to deal with legacy
I might want to wrap my application around a database I don’t control.
Making a new join model might not be an option for me (unless there’s
something I’m missing). The linking table may have attributes that I’ll
need to change.
I could still get them updated via SQL but that’s silly since this is
handled by AR.
Would anyone care to comment on this? Perhaps the functionality could be
removed from Rails but placed in a maintained plugin for legacy
