Gem Version

Simple gem for autogenerating permalink style slugs for your ActiveRecord models.


  • Ruby 2.0.0+
  • Rails 3.1 or higher.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'slugtastic'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install slugtastic


Usage is very simple. Just add the following to your model:

slug :slug, from: :title

This will generate a slug string from the title attribute and store it in the slug attribute unless the slug already contains a string. The slug is generated pre-validation so you can still use validates_presence_of :slug.

There are no extra options at present.
