first-floor =========== An extension for ActionController::Base. I'm lazy and am tired of: - Updating controller code to do what I want for every project - Copying the same controller centralization code between projects. It's not DRY. Eventually, things that aren't DRY begin to smell. So, what am I doing here? This gem defines ActionController::FirstFloor, which inherits ActionController::Base It defines the following common REST methods: * index * show * new * create * edit * update * destroy It also defines render_response, which takes an object, a template name and an optional status. The seven methods utilize render_response to render a response. HTML, JSON, XML and YAML are supported. The extension of the request will determine the response format. Template names are presumed to be the method named itself. Objects used within the templates are assumed to be the object name. For instance, you have object Foo. * An index will return @foos * show will use @foo In my workflow, I generate model and controller with rspec's generator, and then can rip out the guts of the generated controllers in favor of FirstFloor. Next steps: - improving my project generation process. - Adding a test suite COPYRIGHT ========= Copyright (c) 2009-2012 Nathan L. Walls. See LICENSE for details.
