Tipps

  1. This generator creates all necessary folders and files needed for creating your own page layouts and elements for your website:

    rails generate alchemy:scaffold
    
  2. If you use the ferret full text search (enabled by default), then please add a job to your crontab that reindexes the ferret index.

    cd /path/to/your/alchemy && RAILS_ENV=production rake ferret:rebuild_index > /dev/null
    
  3. You can easily create your element files (for view and editor) depending on the elements.yml with this generator:

    rails generate alchemy:elements --skip
