Is there a way to AutoParse a string to another type - e.g. if a Date format then date, else if integer than Integer etc, in Rails?
I’m wanting to pass search parameters via a URL, however since everything in the URL will be a string it would be good to automatically convert a string to the most likely variable type. In particular differentiating between an Integer and a Date.
Does this exist somewhere in Ruby already? Or do I have to write myself?
Thanks in advance
