Agile Web Development with Rails 7: CreateSupportRequests Migration (pg 253)


On page 253, the migration to create the support_requests table is different than all the previous in the book.

  • g is used instead of generate on the command line
  • field names/types are not passed as arguments to the generate command
  • comments are added to the migration file

I’m not suggesting it be changed to be the same as previous migrations (though it could too); I like seeing the alternate approach. It could be useful to the reader to explain the differences compared to the previous migrations (I like the newer comment ability!)
