    Are you sure you want it that way? I thought since the default is String that the type only makes sense when you need something specifically different, hence the code:

    property :<%= attribute.name %><%= ", :type => #{attribute.type_class}" unless attribute.type_class == "String" %>

    Easy enough to remove though if you think it should include type always.

    property :type => String

    was a bad example. Default is not String but any primitive type.
    Currently :type is only used for type conversion, so it only make sence if it is a Date, Time or DateTime object.
    Maybe it also make a bit sense if you want to set an expectation for documentation purpose.


    property :type => Fixnum
    would be the same as describe this in a comment
    property :type # :type is a Fixnum

    I think there is a point being able to express the type of the property but it should also be possible to generate
    properties without any type information.
