Overview

Active Record Schema

Allows programmers to programmatically define a schema in a portable DSL. This means you can define tables, indexes, etc. without using SQL directly, so your applications can more easily support multiple databases.

Usage:

ActiveRecord::Schema[7.0].define do
  create_table :authors do |t|
    t.string :name, null: false
  end

  add_index :authors, :name, :unique

  create_table :posts do |t|
    t.integer :author_id, null: false
    t.string :subject
    t.text :body
    t.boolean :private, default: false
  end

  add_index :posts, :author_id
end

ActiveRecord::Schema is only supported by database adapters that also support migrations, the two features being very similar.
