branch: master
README.rdoc

nested_scaffold

A scaffold command that generates a set of perfectly working nested resource for Rails 3.

Features

  • Generates a nested child resource with a single command

  • Generates a beautifully working bunch of code

  • Automatically generates the appropriate model associations for ActiveRecord

  • Haml ready

Rails versions

3.0.x, 3.1 and 3.2

Install

Put this line in your Gemfile:

gem 'nested_scaffold'

Then bundle:

% bundle

Usage

% rails generate nested_scaffold PARENT_NAME/NAME [field:type field:type] [options]

(Expects PARENT model to exist in advance)

Example

While “Post” model exists,

% rails g nested_scaffold post/comment name:string content:text

This will create:

comment {model, controller, helper, views, tests}
nested resource route
Post.has_many :comments association

Options

Basically same as the original scaffold.

  • namespace (who needs?)

  • valid fixtures (who uses?)

  • some generated functional tests fail (who cares?)

  • RSpec

  • third party orms

  • fixture replacements
