Glengarry

Glengarry

Glengarry is a Rails 3.2 engine that allows you to collect and provides an interface for collecting email leads, CAUSE YOU SHOULD ALWAYS BE CLOSIN'. It's a hack that I wrote quickly to give me what I needed - it may do the same for you, but I make no representations to its quality or completeness.

The email address, IP Address submitting the email address, and reverse geo-coded latitude, longitude, city and country are stored and presented to you in this lovely UI: UI

You can also download all of the captured emails as a CSV file. JOY.

Installation

Add the gem to your gemfile as follows:

gem 'glengarry'

Then run bundle install. Now install the migrations:

bundle exec glengarry:install:migrations

Now simply mount the engine at the path of your choice in your config\routes.rb file as follows:

mount Glengarry::Engine => "/glengarry"

Using Glengarry in you App

Just make a simple form like so:

= form_for(Glengarry::EmailLead.new, :url=>glengarry.email_leads_path) do |f|
  - if flash[:notice].present?
     = content_tag :div, flash[:notice], :id => "flash_notice" if flash[:notice].is_a?(String)
  = f.text_field :email
  = f.submit "Submit"

After POSTing to the Engine's path, a redirect is issued back to the location the POST came from. You probably want to use an AJAX request anyway.

Lockin' that down

You can add basic HTTP authentication by creating an initializer in your config directory like so:

Glengarry::ApplicationController.authenticator = proc {
  authenticate_or_request_with_http_basic 'Glengarry' do |user_name, password|
    user_name == 'username' && password == 'password'
  end
}

Specs

You'll have to use the dummy application under spec/dummy to first create the test database. Then simply do the usual:

bundle exec rake spec

Complainin', bro?

You can get me on Twitter as @MrMcDowall or on App.net as @jmd - have at it, hopefully I'll see you at the Country Club.
