Defaults

Instalation

Just run gem install defaults

Usage

Add the method call defaults to your model.

class Page < ActiveRecord::Base
  defaults :title => "New page", :body => "Put your text here"
end

Attributes will be set only if it's a new record and the attribute is blank.

Retrieve the default attribute with the default_for instance method:

@page.default_for(:title)

You can pass Proc as attribute:

defaults :expires_at => proc { Time.now }

You can override the default attributes as follow:

Page.default_options = {:title => "Here's your new page", :body => "Write your page text"}
