Description

ActiveRecord has a lot of support for tables of similar values. But what about those one time only values, like site settings? This is what ARSettings is intended for. One line to add settings to your ActiveRecord classes. Two to non-ActiveRecord classes. And you can have settings that are not defined on any class as well.

Tested on Ruby versions 1.8.6, 1.8.7, 1.9.2 Tested against ActiveRecord versions 2.3.3, 2.3.5, 2.3.8 and 3.0.1 If you would like me to test against a specific version not on here, let me know.

Usage

First you need to create a table to store your settings, this will probably go in a migration, though the only requirement is that the schema is correct (see example)

  • Use the settings class to store settings (see example)
  • Package settings together under a single namespace (see example)
  • Add settings directly to your ActiveRecord class and its instances (see example)
  • Add settings to any class you like (see example)

Installation

gem install arsettings

Dependencies

Bugs / Contribution

If you discover any errors / bugs, please inform me, and I will fix them and push out a new version.

If you wish to fix it yourself, fork it, fix it, and send me a pull request.

If you think it would fit your use better if it did this or if the interface would be a lot nicer given that then let me know so I can consider that and make the gem better.
