Overview

Attribute type for decimal, high-precision floating point numeric representation. It is registered under the :decimal key.

class BagOfCoffee
  include ActiveModel::Attributes

  attribute :weight, :decimal
end

bag = BagOfCoffee.new
bag.weight = "0.0001"

bag.weight # => 0.1e-3

Numeric instances are converted to BigDecimal instances. Any other objects are cast using their to_d method, if it exists. If it does not exist, the object is converted to a string using to_s, which is then coerced to a BigDecimal using to_d.

Decimal precision defaults to 18, and can be customized when declaring an attribute:

class BagOfCoffee
  include ActiveModel::Attributes

  attribute :weight, :decimal, precision: 24
end
