Public Instance methods

finder (meth=OPTS, opts=OPTS, &block)

Create an optimized finder method using a dataset placeholder literalizer. This pre-computes the SQL to use for the query, except for given arguments.

There are two ways to use this. The recommended way is to pass a symbol that represents a model class method that returns a dataset:

def Artist.by_name(name)
  where(name: name)
end

Artist.finder :by_name

This creates an optimized first_by_name method, which you can call normally:

Artist.first_by_name("Joe")

The alternative way to use this to pass your own block:

Artist.finder(name: :first_by_name){|pl, ds| ds.where(name: pl.arg).limit(1)}

Note that if you pass your own block, you are responsible for manually setting limits if necessary (as shown above).

Options:

:arity

When using a symbol method name, this specifies the arity of the method. This should be used if if the method accepts an arbitrary number of arguments, or the method has default argument values. Note that if the method is defined as a dataset method, the class method Sequel creates accepts an arbitrary number of arguments, so you should use this option in that case. If you want to handle multiple possible arities, you need to call the finder method multiple times with unique :arity and :name methods each time.

:name

The name of the method to create. This must be given if you pass a block. If you use a symbol, this defaults to the symbol prefixed by the type.

:mod

The module in which to create the finder method. Defaults to the singleton class of the model.

:type

The type of query to run. Can be :first, :each, :all, or :get, defaults to :first.

Caveats:

This doesn't handle all possible cases. For example, if you have a method such as:

def Artist.by_name(name)
  name ? where(name: name) : exclude(name: nil)
end

Then calling a finder without an argument will not work as you expect.

Artist.finder :by_name
Artist.by_name(nil).first
# WHERE (name IS NOT NULL)
Artist.first_by_name(nil)
# WHERE (name IS NULL)

See Dataset::PlaceholderLiteralizer for additional caveats.

prepared_finder (meth=OPTS, opts=OPTS, &block)

Similar to finder, but uses a prepared statement instead of a placeholder literalizer. This makes the SQL used static (cannot vary per call), but allows binding argument values instead of literalizing them into the SQL query string.

If a block is used with this method, it is instance_execed by the model, and should accept the desired number of placeholder arguments.

The options are the same as the options for finder, with the following exception:

:type

Specifies the type of prepared statement to create
