I have already written many times about the ease of extending Ecto and changing the default behavior. It is possible, for example primary key type used in the schema.
However, this is not all!
Today I want to present a way to change the default names for fields created by the
Own names and types
updated_at are not very convenient, especially if an application should use
created_at to support backward compatibility (with other systems).
It is also possible to eliminate the default use of
naive_datetime and use
datetime, which can be very useful for many applications.
Use the code to change the default behavior:
1 timestamps(inserted_at: :created_at, updated_at: :updated_at, type: :datetime)
All options can be pre-configured by setting
@timestamps_opts in our schema.
You can also check the documentation to learn about additional possibilities.
