branch: master

acts_as_account

Theory

ActsAsAccount implements a “Double Entry Accounting” system for your Rails-models.

It hooks into ActiveRecord and allows to add accounts to any model by simply means of adding “has_account” to your model. Because the accounts are connected via a has_many relation no migration to the account-holder tables is needed.

We also hook into the ActionController request cycle to warn the developer if a request has left the uncommitted changes in the system.

How to test

Run the cucumber features from the acs_as_account gem, just execute

  • rake features:create_database

  • cucumber
