Is there a annotate_models like tool in phoenix?

Elixir newbie here.

In rails, annotate_models can help to annotate table schema information in comment.

# == Schema Info
# Table name: line_items
#  id                  :integer(11)    not null, primary key
#  quantity            :integer(11)    not null
#  product_id          :integer(11)    not null
#  unit_price          :float
#  order_id            :integer(11)

 class LineItem < ActiveRecord::Base
   belongs_to :product

Is there a similar tool in phoenix ? Or can I read a table’s column and index information manually by ecto?


I have been using annotate models in Rails, but it’s probably less important in Ecto because the schema is quite expressive.

Searching in did not give similar package.

It would probably be quite simple to add, when you can do the part about the data retrieval from the db. Wrap use Ecto.Schema in a use EctoAnnotate.Schema and decorate the schema/2 macro. In it you should be able to get the file and location of the call and the table used.
