Ecto types to support MACADDR and Network extensions provided by Postgrex.

Although this is primarily an Ecto library, it has a hard dependency on Postgrex due to the types it is providing.


  1. Add :ecto_network to your list of dependencies in mix.exs:

     def deps do
         # or 0.7.0 if you're stuck on Ecto < 3
         {:ecto_network, "~> 1.5.0"}
  2. Create your migrations using the Postgres types as atoms.

     def change do
       create table(:your_table) do
         add :ip_address, :inet
         add :mac_address, :macaddr
         add :network, :cidr
  3. Use the new types in your Ecto schemas.

     schema "your_table" do
       field :ip_address, EctoNetwork.INET
       field :mac_address, EctoNetwork.MACADDR
       field :network, EctoNetwork.CIDR
