Include the gem in your Gemfile and bundle to install the gem.
You may need to add the following gems if you want to use default layout for how_to. See layout customization section for more details
gem "jquery-rails" gem 'bootstrap-sass' gem 'sass-rails', '~> 3.2.5'
Install the migrations
Run db migrations
Mount in your application's route
mount HowTo::Engine => "/how_to"
You can also get the configuration file and overrides by running the config generator.
rails g how_to:config
Details are documented in config file, so please read the config file carefully.
rake db:migrate and visit mounted location, e.g.
You should see the public page. You should also see two links on head section named sections and contents. if you override the authorization methods (described in later section) make sure you have permissions to access those pages.
Two models are there.
You can have multilevel section. You can consider this as category. Sections are hierarchical, but only leaves are eligible to have contents
You can create content as question/answer or faq under a specific section. If you love rich text editor for content then see the last section of Readme.
Sample helper methods you may need to define them in your application controller
def authorize_to_manage_how_to! #you can set the method name in config file redirect_to :root, :notice => t('notifications.admin_section_access_error') unless admin? end def allowed_to_view_how_to #you can set the method name in config file redirect_to main_app.root_path, :notice => t('notifications.admin_section_access_error') unless current_user end def permitted_to_manage_how_to? #you can set the method name in config file admin? end
Optionaly you can customise the layout and view page using:
this will generate layout and associated partials under views/layouts/how_to/
rails g how_to:layout
this will generate the public page for faq/manual under views/how_to/
rails g how_to:view
