Ok, so the year will just be stored as information (I mean you’ll just
use it to display the information on a page) no?
If it’s like that you store it as a varchar or integer I think. But if
you will need to process the year in other functions well it should be
better to store it as a year.
When creating a new line on your database you can use the Date.today
function to get the current date, after the function strftime will
help you to display only the year:
@year = <your_object>.year.strftime("%Y")
displaying @year in your html.erb page you’ll only see the year from
the date, just as you want to.
