Instance Method Summary (collapse)

Instance Method Details

- (nil) data_miner(options = {}) { ... }

Define a data miner script.

Examples:

Creating steps

class MyModel < ActiveRecord::Base
  data_miner do
    process [...]
    import [...]
    import [...yes, it's ok to have more than one import step...]
    sql [...]
    process [...]
    [...etc...]
  end
end

From the README

class Country < ActiveRecord::Base
  self.primary_key = 'iso_3166_code'
  data_miner do
    import("OpenGeoCode.org's Country Codes to Country Names list",
           :url => 'http://opengeocode.org/download/countrynames.txt',
           :format => :delimited,
           :delimiter => '; ',
           :headers => false,
           :skip => 22) do
      key   :iso_3166_code, :field_number => 0
      store :iso_3166_alpha_3_code, :field_number => 1
      store :iso_3166_numeric_code, :field_number => 2
      store :name, :field_number => 5
    end
  end
end

Options Hash (options):

  • :append (TrueClass, FalseClass) — default: false

    Add steps to existing data miner script instead of starting from scratch.

Yields:

  • The block defining the steps.

- (Object) run_data_miner_on_parent_associations!

Note:

Used extensively in github.com/brighterplanet/earth

Run the data miner scripts of parent associations. Useful for dependencies. Safe to call using process.

Examples:

Since Provinces depend on Countries, make sure Countries are data mined first

class Country < ActiveRecord::Base
  [...some data miner script...]
end
class Province < ActiveRecord::Base
  belongs_to :country
  data_miner do
    [...]
    process "make sure my dependencies have been loaded" do
      run_data_miner_on_parent_associations!
    end
    [...]
  end
end
