int64 method

  1. @protected
ColumnBuilder<BigInt> int64()

Use this as the body of a getter to declare a column that holds a 64-big integer as a BigInt.

The main purpose of this column is to support large integers for web apps compiled to JavaScript, where using an int does not reliably work for numbers larger than 2⁵². It stores the exact same data as an integer column (and supports the same options), but instructs drift to generate a data class with a BigInt field and a database conversion aware of large intergers.

Note: The use of int64 is only necessary for apps that need to work on the web and use columns that are likely to store values larger than 2⁵². In all other cases, using integer directly is much more efficient and recommended.
