has_permalink

Build Status

Coverage Status

Checkout haspermalink.org for more details.

A gem for generating url-safe permalink-string from any other attribute in the same ActiveRecord model.

Make you urls look like '/users/olkarls' instead of '/users/1'.

Installation

put this in your gemfile:

gem "has_permalink"

And run in your terminal:

bundle install

If your model doesn’t already have the permalink attribute you can run this generator command:

rails g has_permalink [Model]

That will generate a migration which adds a permalink attribute [Model] and indexes it. Don’t forget to:

rake db:migrate

Example

class Post < ActiveRecord::Base
  has_permalink
end

The plugin assumes that the permalink attribute is generated from the title attribute but it can be changed by providing an argument like this:

class Post < ActiveRecord::Base
  has_permalink :heading
end

The permalink attribute is generated by the before_validation callback and is only transformed if it’s blank. If it's not blank and you want to regenerate it use:

@post.generate_permalink!

Use this syntax your controller:

def show
  @post = Post.find_by_permalink(params[:id])
end
