ActiveRecord Attributes API

ActiveRecord Attributes API: Ruby on Rails 5 New Features
ActiveRecord Attributes API: Ruby on Rails 5 New Features

ActiveRecord gains an Attributes API in Ruby on Rails 5. ActiveRecord automatically detects attribute types from the underlying database. The new Attributes API provides a standard way to override ActiveRecord’s type detection and other defaults. Kevin demonstrates how to use the new API to choose a different data type or default value than the database column. He shows how the API will also let you define custom data types which override the cast, serialize, and deserialize methods.
