bulk_api is a Rails engine to bulk access a user's resources via an API.
It provides SproutCore integration via a custom DataSource. As a result, a SproutCore application can quickly get all the relevant backend data into the client-side SproutCore front end.
This is a demo application (the todo example from the SproutCore Guides) integrated with a Rails app. The Rails app has a single
Todo model. The integration between SproutCore and Rails is via the
/api/bulk route used by bulk_api.
There is a guide to building this application.
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:drnic/todos-bulk-api-demo.git cd todos-bulk-api-demo git submodule update --init bundle rake db:migrate rails s
Open http://localhost:3000/_sproutcore/todos in a browser. Add todo items, finish them, close the browser and revisit it.
SHAZAM! The data is still there.
There is no User model and no authentication. bulk_api supports this, but the current example does not.
Want to see the example data in your database from SproutCore's perspective?
Seriously? It's example code.
Seriously. Ok, MIT license.
