rails plugin install email@example.com:jeroeningen/acts_as_price.git
Create a column in the table of your database which you want to acts as a price.
NOTE THAT THE COLUMN MUST BE OF THE TYPE INTEGER.
In your model add the following:
acts_as_price column_name, :validates = true
column_name is the name of your database column e.g. price or price_per_liter.
validates is optional and add validation to the column
This plugin creates the following getters and setters:
'price_in_cents' and '<column_name>_in_cents' #sets and returns the price in cents
'price' and '<column_name>' #sets and returns the price
car = Car.new :price => 12999
fuel = Fueltype.new :price_per_liter => 1.12
Acts As Price comes with a helper method to automatically test the plugin using Rspec.
To use this method please add the following to your spec_helper.rb file:
Now you may add the following code to your spec-files for your models:
context "given an valid model" do it "should acts as price" do test_acts_as_price_methods <column_name>, <fixture or stub> end end
To test the plugin use the command 'rake test' or 'rspec spec/*_spec.rb' inside the dir '~/vendor/plugins/acts_as_price'
This plugin comes with Rspec tests. However this plugin assumes that you have a database configuration, it actually don't use the database for the Rspec tests.
