Can Flag
=================
Strongly inspired by acts_as_flaggable.
Intended to allow your users to flag content as inappropriate, and set up some ways for you
to deal with the content.
== Resources
Install
1. Download the tarball from github, or, clone the repository and symlink it into your application.
Yes, I'm serious.
2. $ script/generate can_flag flags
This will create the following files:
app/controllers/flags_controller.rb
spec/helpers/flags_controller_spec.rb
app/helpers/flags_helper
db/migrate/flags_migration.rb
3. Modify any content model with
class Article < ActiveRecord::Base
can_be_flagged
end
You can also add a callback
class Article
can_be_flagged
def after_flagged
# send an email
# delete this post
# suspend the owner of the post if the flags.size > 3
# suspend the owner of the post if their total flags count > 5
end
end
4. Modify your user model with
class User < ActiveRecord::Base
can_flag
end
5. Usage
article = Article.find(4)
current_user.flags.create :flaggable => article
* When a flag is added via add_flag, flagged(flag, flag_count) is called
on the flaggable model. This allows the model to perform certain
operations if the number of flags reaches a certain point. For example,
you may want to mark a Post as deleted if a Post receives too many "spam"
flags
* Each flag reference flaggable object
model = Model.find(1)
model.flags.get(0).commtable == model
