Add MetaData to your Models in Rails

Add metadata about your tables to your models in Rails.

>Rails model files contain no information on the tables they represent. This is a good thing in general, because it reduces duplication—add a column to a table, and there’s no configuration to update in the model.

>However, when you’re writing code, it’s sometimes nice to be able to see just what attributes a model has.

>Enter annotate models, a really trivial Rails plugin I hacked up in the plane back from the first No Fluff of the year. The plugin adds a comment block to the top of each model file, documenting the schema. If you update the schema, run it again and it updates the comment.
