feature: choose serialization method for a column

Reported by Peter Abrahamsen | March 11th, 2009 @ 02:02 AM | in 3.x

I'd like to be able to have an alternative to YAML serialization for columns. I'd specifically like JSON serialization, but I suppose other people will want other methods.

It seems like there might be another solution (for extra credit) that involves breaking the transformation aspect of aggregated columns (:constructor, :converter, etc) away from AR::Aggregations, and generalizes it so it could be used with non-aggregated columns.

Come to think of it, I'll go try to make an aggregation on just one column to JSONify the data.

    • Tag changed from aggregations, json, serialize to activerecord, aggregations, json, serialize

    I would also like the ability to serialize a column to JSON. Canonical YAML is kind of silly verbose in many cases.
