Ecto.Model

Parsed documentation:
View on GitHub
Provides convenience functions for defining and working
with models.

## Using

When used, `Ecto.Model` works as an "umbrella" module that adds
common functionality to your module:

  * `use Ecto.Schema` - provides the API necessary to define schemas
  * `import Ecto.Changeset` - functions for building and manipulating changesets
  * `import Ecto.Model` - functions for working with models and their associations
  * `import Ecto.Query` - functions for generating and manipulating queries

Plus all the modules existing in `Ecto.Model.*` are brought in
too:

  * `use Ecto.Model.Callbacks` - provides lifecycle callbacks
  * `use Ecto.Model.Timestamps` - automatically set `inserted_at` and
    `updated_at` fields declared via `Ecto.Schema.timestamps/1`

However, you can avoid using `Ecto.Model` altogether in favor
of cherry picking any of the functionality above.

## Importing

You may want to import this module in contexts where you are
working with different models. For example, in a web application,
you may want to import this module into your plugs to provide
conveniences for building and accessing model information.
