ActiveCrudify

A dynamic resource controller for Rails > 3.0 that keeps your controllers nice and skinny.

ActiveCrudify was inspired from Crudify.

Installation

It's best to install ActiveCrudify by adding your Rails project's Gemfile:

# Gemfile
source "http://rubygems.org"
gem 'active_crudify', '>= 0.1.0'

Now run:

bundle install

Usage

In its most basic form, active_crudify is designed to be used like this:

class PostsController < ApplicationController
  crudify :post
end

Say you want to customize an action that's being defined by crudify, simply overwrite it!

class PostsController < ApplicationController
  crudify :post

  def create
    @post = Post.new(params[:post])
    # ... the rest of your custom action
  end
end

Ok that seems easy enough, but what if my action is just a tiny bit different? That's where the hook methods come in...

Hook Methods

`before_create`
`before_update`
`before_destroy`
`before_action`

You can define hook_methods in your controller just like this:

def before_create
  do_something
  supre
end

Notice: that before_create calls a second hook; before_action. This is a generic hook that fires before every crud method's call to save, update or destroy. This means it might be helpful for you to call super when overwriting this method so that the chain of hooks keeps firing.

Notice: if hook_methods return false, the action will return. Because in action it call hook_methods just like this:

def create
  ...
  return if before_create === false
  ...
end

Here's an example of a before_create hook:

class PostsController < ApplicationController
  crudify :post

  def before_create
    @post.author == current_user
    super
  end

end
