List of a Model attributes


#1

Hi,

I am just starting on Ruby and I would like to know if there is any
place in the code where I can get a Model attributes list ?

Of course I could look into the migration file or look at the DB tables,
but is there another way ?

Thanks

There’s the annotate models plugin:
http://agilewebdevelopment.com/plugins/annotate_models . I don’t know
whether it works with recent versions of Rails.

Do you mean Model.column_names ?
You could just use it, and it will return an arry with all your column
names in your DB tables.

Assuming you mean as a programmer (ie not with some code at runtime),
take a look at schema.rb in your app.
