Hey Sorty

Developed for use on Purify: Awesome Bug & Issue Tracking, Hey Sorty gives you simple column sorting for your Rails apps.

Installation

Install as a plugin:

script/plugin install git@github.com:purify/hey_sorty.git

Usage

Add sorty to your model:

class MyModel < ActiveRecord::Base
  sortable
end

You can optionally specify the default column to sort on, and the default order in which to sort (defaults to id asc):

class MyModel < ActiveRecord::Base
  sortable :updated_at, :desc
end

Next, add sorty to your controller:

class MyModelController < ApplicationController
  def index
    @my_models = MyModel.sorty(params).paginate(:per_page => 20, :page => params[:page])
  end
end

Finally, add the sortable links to your view:

<table>
  <thead>
    <tr>
      <th class="name"><%= sorty(:name, :label => 'Full Name') %></th>
      <th class="created_at"><%= sorty(:created_at, :label => 'Date') %></th>
      <th class="description"><%= sorty(:description) %></th>
    </tr>
  </thead>
  <tbody>
    <%= render @my_models %>
  </tbody>
</table>
<%= will_paginate @my_models %>
