map-fields

DESCRIPTION:

A Rails plugin which provides a hook to preview and map the fields of an uploaded CSV file to a pre-defined schema

FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

  • Captures the post and provides an intermediate view where a user can map their data to the expected schema

  • Provides a default mapping view that can be customised

  • Allows the import to be part of a larger form (The form fields are remembered through the mapping)

SYNOPSIS:

Lists controller

class ListsController < AppliactionController
  map_fields :create, ['Title', 'First name', 'Last name'], :file_field => :file, :params => [:list]

  def index
    @lists = List.find(:all)
  end

  def new
    @list = List.new
  end

  def create
    @list = List.new(params[:list])
    if fields_mapped?
      mapped_fields.each do |row|
        @list.contact.create(:title => row[0], 
                             :first_name => row[1], 
                             :last_name => row[2])
      end
      flash[:notice] = 'Contact list created'
      redirect_to :action => :index
    else
      render
    end
  rescue MapFields::InconsistentStateError
    flash[:error] = 'Please try again'
    redirect_to :action => :new
  rescue MapFields::MissingFileContentsError
    flash[:error] = 'Please upload a file'
    redirect_to :action => :new
  end
end

New view (new.html.erb)

<h1>Import a new List</h1>
<% form_for :list, :html => {:multipart => true} do |form| %>
  <div class="field">
    <%= form.label :name %>
    <%= form.text_field :name %>
  </div>
  <div class="field">
    <label for="file">File</label>
    <%= file_field_tag 'file' %>
  </div>
  <div class="buttons">
    <%= form.submit 'Import' %>
  </div>
<% end %>

Create view (create.html.erb)

<h1>Import a new List</h1>
<p>Please map the details you're importing</p>
=render :partial => 'map_fields/map_fields'
