View Source Overview

Ecto DateTimeRange is a library extending Ecto with field types to handle PostgreSQL column types encapsulating timestamp ranges. The types provided by this library can be paired with view components in order to facilitate editing ranges in forms.

installation

Installation

Add the hex package to mix.exs:

def deps do
  [
    {:ecto_date_time_range, "~> 0.1"}
  ]
end

If DateTimes will be shifted between time zones at any point during the value's lifecycle, for instance to show/edit timestamps in the time zone reported by a person's browser, then a time zone database must also be added and configured as Elixir's :time_zone_database.

migrations

Migrations

Add migrations using :tstzrange column types.

defmodule Core.Repo.Migrations.AddThings do
  use Ecto.Migration

  def change do
    create table(:things) do
      add :performed_during, :tstzrange
    end
  end
end

For more detailed information see the migrations guide.

schemas

Schemas

defmodule Core.Thing do
  use Ecto.Schema
  import Ecto.Changeset

  schema "things" do
    field :performed_during, Ecto.UTCDateTimeRange
  end

  @required_attrs ~w[performed_during]a
  def changeset(data \\ %__MODULE__{}, attrs) do
    data
    |> cast(attrs, @required_attrs)
    |> validate_required(@required_attrs)
  end
end
