Model generator doesn't skip migration

Reported by Christoph | October 17th, 2010 @ 10:54 AM

When I already have generated a model but want to re-run the generation process (e.g. to add rspec specs for the model after installing it) with the option '--skip', the generator complains about an already existing migration with the same name. From my understanding, the skip option should also skip the migration and not demand a '--migration false' option.

    • State changed from “new” to “open”
    • Tag set to generators, migrations
    • Importance changed from “” to “Low”

    From the model generator's --help:

    -s, [--skip]     # Skip files that already exist
    -f, [--force]    # Overwrite files that already exist

    Christoph is right, we need to change the generator's behavior or the description of the --skip and --force flags. I'd say they should simply skip or force the migration, but it'd be nice to get some more opinions on this. :)
