#1

Is there an easy way to access the ActiveRecord
@new_record_before_save attribute?

Thanks,
Tom

Maybe…

u = User.new
u.new_record?
=> true

Well, it depends on what you mean by easy.

model.instance_variable_get(’@new_record_before_save’) will work

If you’re using an older ActiveRecord and you are trying to tell the
difference between a find_or_create_by_…, You can “rely” on the
deprecated model.new_record?.nil? to know that it was a find
(model.new_record? == false means it was actually a create)
