Rails date Range

Holy Shmoly! Sometimes Rails and ruby just blows me away,

Let’s assume you are trying to find a bunch of records between a time frame.

class Call < ActiveRecord::Base
named_scope :by_month, lambda { |d| { :conditions => { :date => d.beginning_of_month..d.end_of_month } } }

simply specify a range

and running (the named_scope )

this_months_calls = Call.by_month Date.today

And Rails will return all the calls that were recorded during the current month. Love it.

named_scope :by_month, lambda { |d| { :conditions => ["MONTH(date) = ?", d.month ] } }

(not applicable to postgresql but damn faster)

@Jerome: Too bad that doesn't actually select a single month, it selects that month from all years. Fail!
