  • Reduce memory consumption with a custom ActiveRecord attribute | 2021-04-11
    That seemed interesting. Whenever an hstore value is fetched from the DB, it gets parsed there, ActiveRecord gets rid of quoting. In our project Hstore is used mainly for keeping translations. So, every record keeps identical keys in the Hstore column, something like this:

    But that's not a legacy issue, that's an optimization to avoid checking connections in/out constantly as it can be costly. The "refactoring" necessary to do like Sequel would just be to delete that line of code. | 2021-03-31
