ToyScaffold

Having coached in both Rails Girls and Rails Bridge, I found that quite a few students are confused by all the magic happening behind Rails. This gem aims to make it easier to understand for beginners, especially those who are programming for the first time.

The changes include:

  • Instead of loading models through before_action, explicitly load in each action instead.
  • Do not use respond_to, but just assume HTML instead.
  • Comment about each action's respective view file path

Check out how a scaffolded controller looks like here

Installation

Add this line to your Rails application's Gemfile:

gem 'toy_scaffold'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Usage

When calling rails generate scaffold Post, the toy_scaffold's version will be used automatically.

Development

After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release to create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to rubygems.org.
