polymorphic_aliases

An ActiveRecord extension to use aliases for your polymorphic associations.

Usage

Your model code:

# app/models/comment.rb    
class Comment < ApplicationRecord    
  belongs_to :commentable, polymorphic: true, types: %w( Post Picture )    
end    
    
# app/models/post.rb    
class Post < ApplicationRecord    
  has_many :comments, as: :commentable    
end    
    
# app/models/picture.rb    
class Picture < ApplicationRecord    
  has_many :comments, as: :commentable    
end

In the console:

post    = Post.create(title: "Polymorphic Aliases", content: "...")
picture = Picture.create(legend: "Here's my code.", url: "https://avatars.githubusercontent.com/u/47113995?v=4")

comment_from_post    = Comment.create(content: "...", commentable: post)
comment_from_picture = Comment.create(content: "...", commentable: picture)

comment_from_post.post.title
# => "Polymorphic Aliases"
