README.rdoc

A Rails plugin to automatically add some quick named_scopes to your models.

These are especially useful for quick modifications to a query on an association.

The named_scopes

The named scopes added are:

  • order

  • limit

  • offset

  • with - alias for :include

  • where - alias for :conditions

Examples

With a User model having many Posts

# Standard association method to retrieve all posts
user.posts

# Order the posts
user.posts.order('created_at')

# Limit the results to a specific number
user.posts.limit(5)

# Offset the results
user.posts.offset(5)

# Include other associated models
user.posts.with(:comments)
user.posts.with(:comments, :author)
user.posts.with({:comments => :author}, :author)

# Limit your results with conditions
user.posts.where(:published => true)

Note

Some of these don't promote best practices for your code but can be very useful when working with the console.
