Rails Database Migration Status

Wondering if you’ve run the latest database migration? Wonder no more. There are better ways to find out this information than blindly running the migrations or waiting for your app to crash.

A handy command built into Rails is rake db:migrate:status. Here’s some sample output from my blog’s development PostgreSQL database:

% rake db:migrate:status

database: worth-chicago_co_development

 Status   Migration ID    Migration Name
--------------------------------------------------
   up     20150422174456  Create developers
   up     20150422174509  Create authem sessions
   up     20150422200749  Create posts
   up     20150423152139  Add url slugs to posts
   up     20150628171109  Add constraints to posts and developers
