Timestamps in Migrations

Hi there again :slight_smile:

I’m creating my mysql tables using migrations and I have noticed that
the t.timestamps line creates two columns named ‘created_at’ and
‘updated_at’ as datetime type but they allow null values.

How can I say to rails I want that these two columns are not null
(:null=>default doesn’t work).

You can specify that a column allows NULL or not like this:
:null => true
:null => false

The docs for TaleDefinition#column should be useful. That’s the method
that’s called when you use, e.g., add_column in a migration.
