The initial purpose of this plugin is to remove some of the duplicity I had acquired when multiple models were being “tracked.” Whether it be a package shipped via FedEx or a book loaned from a library. This plugin simply separates this trackability.
Generate the migration for holding all of the tracks.
script/generate track_migration rake db:migrate
Generate a migration for something trackable. I don't know how bad this is needed, but I put a “tracking_number” in all things trackable.
script/generate trackable_migration Transfer script/generate trackable_migration Book script/generate trackable_migration Package rake db:migrate config.gem 'jakewendt-simply_trackable', :source => 'http://rubygems.org' script/generate simply_trackable
