Audited vs papertrail gem for auditing table changes?
I'm currently looking to use either one of these two for auditing changes made by specific user roles on a rails 6 ecommerce app using mysql. They both seem similar and I'm currently leaning towards papertrail due to the more frequent updates, but I was curious if there is any specific advantage of using one over the other(performance, ease of use...etc) or anyone knows of any pros/cons that stick out.
Would be keen to know if people have used any other gems that seemed good as well.
They are kind of similar. I think that the "main" draw back I've read regarding Papertrail is that it is storing the user ID as a string... so when you do a lookup you have to convert it back to a int.
Did you decide which one to use for your project? If yes, what were you key drivers?
