# Elixir Rivets — Data Model Framework

***This project is still a "Work in Progress" and not ready for GA***

[Rivets]( is an opinionated framework for managing data models in Elixir.

`Rivet` is a series of helper libraries for elixir applications wanting help in their Rivets projects.

Library Contributors: Mark Erickson, Brandon Gillespie, Lyle Mantooth, Jake Wood

Look in module docs lib/mix/tasks/index.ex for command syntax


* running from within umbrella is hairy. Just run commands from within the sub-app, instead of top of umbrella, for now
* configurable table prefixes in db schema
* maturing command set (see mix rivet help)
* tighter integration w/Ecto (see prior)
* mix rivet migrate is silent, need to get it noisy like typical ecto.migrate
* tests are currently going into path/model/model_test; should just be path/model_test
* default model shouldn't create so many things

## How to use?

See rivet-ident for a project using the Rivets Framework.

You can bring the rivet-ident into YOUR project as a dependency (see notes on that project for more details)
