File based persistence for Ruby on Rails models. Like ActiveRecord or ActiveResource but using the file system instead of a database or RESTful resources.


To install, run the following from inside of your rails project.

ruby script/plugin install git://

Or if you are using git for version control and you'd rather include this as a submodule execute the following

git submodule add git:// vendor/plugins/active_file.git
