If your like me, with Rails you’ve been choked trying to type in the path to the latest migration file with those damn timestamps.

Well I have a solution for you using Bash Functions.

Add this function to your .bashrc. Just replace vim with your favourite editor.

# ~/.bashrc

  vim db/migrate/$(ls db/migrate/ | sort | tail -1)

You must be in the root of your app for the function to work correctly.

$ last_migration
