Starting in Rails 5 you can also do this with dates!


will generate the SQL

SELECT `users`.* FROM `users` WHERE (`users`.`created_at` >= '2018-07-07 17:00:51')

Double Bonus

Once Ruby 2.6 is released (December 25, 2018) you’ll be able to use the new infinite range syntax! Instead of 201..Float::INFINITY you’ll be able to just write 201... More info in this blog post.

The Date.tomorrow.. syntax is much more readable than some Arel incantation including gt. I’ll actually remember this compared to the Arel version.
