Cancannible Demo with Rails 4.2
A Rails 4.2.x application that demonstrates how to use Cancannible gem for role-based access permissions.
This can be used interactively at cancannibledemo4.evendis.com.
How to run the application locally
# clone the app and bundle (NB: assumes you have a working ruby 2 environment) git clone https://github.com/evendis/cancannible_demo4.git cd cancannible_demo4 bundle install # create and verify a db user (the app uses PostgreSQL by defualt) psql postgres -c "create role cancannible_demo4 with login superuser" psql postgres -U cancannible_demo4 -c "\c" # setup the database rake db:setup # now you are ready to go.. rails s open http://localhost:3000
Only tests that specifically demonstrate cancannible-related behaviour are included, to avoid confusing the issue.
The application uses haml for convenience and clarity. There's no dependency however; all this works fine with ERB or other view styles. The customers_controller.rb provides an example of standard ERB views.
