Due to some deployment issues I stopped tracking schema.rb in git. Somehow I have stuffed this up and somewhere along the way my schema.rb file has disappeared.
Is there a way of regenerating schema.rb from the database or from the migrations? I would prefer not to lose the existing data.
If you run a
rake -T it will list all possible rake tasks for your Rails project. One of them is db:schema:dump which will recreate the schema.rb for the Rails app from the database.
bundle exec rake db:schema:dump
