Patching Rails Database Schema Dumps to Support Multiple PostgreSQL Schemas

By Glen Crawford,

2020 development Heroku rails RubyonRails Salesforce

If you have a Ruby on Rails application running with a PostgreSQL database, then you may be aware that both tools support the usage of ActiveRecord models being backed by database tables stored in different schemas. This isn't the most common thing to do, but it can sometimes be useful to namespace your database tables within different schemas to keep them separate.

For example, at reinteractive on storeConnect®, we have tables that are synced from Salesforce via Heroku Connect. These tables are stored in the salesforce schema, and other tables that are specific to the local Rails application, such as shopping carts, are stored in the store_connect schema.

Business Grants to help You Innovate and Transform

By Virginia Gordon,

2020 management

We are facing a new world, which has been rapidly and almost daily. One thing is certain to me — we are going to come out the other end of this crisis with some new business models firmly in place.

Most businesses have a website or at least a Facebook page, but some are woefully lacking when it comes to having adequate digital technology in place to sell and service their customers online. Working from home, online exercise classes, online medical appointments, etc. This is going to be our new norm for some unknown time into the future. I paid for a live streaming concert with Kate Ceberano last Sunday for the first time. Supporting our artists at a distance!

Tips on Adapting to Remote Work

By Chris Teague,

2020 development Remote Work

With the situation surrounding COVID-19, there are lots of people who have suddenly found themselves working remotely. It’s a great way of working, but it’s certainly different to an office job. I’ve been working remotely for 4 years now. At reinteractive, this isn’t a unique way of working for us. Being a 100% remote working company, everyone on our team works remotely by default - in person meetings and on-site work are the rare exception, not the norm. Over these years, I’ve learned a few tricks that will hopefully help you adjust to working remotely, particularly if this is your first time doing it.

One of the earliest lessons I learned was don’t skimp on your home office set up. You’re going to be sitting in your chair, at your desk, looking at a screen for around 8 hours a day, so make sure you are set up to do this in a safe and comfortable manner.

One of Rails 6’s new features is ActionableErrors, which allows you to add buttons to Rails’ default error page to perform certain actions. Out-of-the-box Rails 6 includes one for the common “pending migration” error, where you can hit a button on the page and run the migrations without having to jump back to a terminal.
