Standin gem

A Ruby on Rails Engine for creating dummy pages as "standins" without the needs for routes or controllers.

Install

This is still in alpha and under heavy development (read untested...). To use, clone the rails engine:

    git clone@github.com/jhoglund/standin.git

Link to in from gem to your Gemfile in your Ruby on Rails 3.2 application:

gem "standin", :path => 'path/to/the/git/repository'

How to use

The gem allows for adding pages for prototyping without the need to create routes or controllers. To do so, add a standing directory in your app directory. To create a navigational structure add pages and sub-pages in a named hierarchy. I.E:

    rails_app/
        app/
            standin/
                index.html.erb # localhost:3000
                users/
                    index.html.erb # localhost:3000/users/
                    first_user/
                        index.html.erb # localhost:3000/users/first_user/
                        edit.html.erb # localhost:3000/users/first_user/edit
                settings.html.erb  # localhost:3000/settings/

Any concurring route added to the routes file of the rails application will overwrite the structure created by the Standin gem.

Configuration

If one wants a custom layout to be used for the standin pages, either place a layout named standing.html{.erb} in the app/views/layouts directory.
