Aktibibo

Aktibibo is a simple gem that allows an ActiveRecord model instance to be set as active, inactive or deactivated using convenience methods.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'aktibibo'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install aktibibo

Setup

  1. Create the necessary columns using a migration:

     rails generate migration add_activated_at_to_foo activated_at:datetime
     rails generate migration add_deactivated_at_to_foo deactivated_at:datetime
    
  2. Define that your model is "activatable":

    class Foo < ActiveRecord::Base
      activatable
    end

Usage

Let's say that an instance foo is available.

Methods to activate and deactivate

foo.activate
foo.deactivate

Non-bang methods will just return nil (gracefully) if an already active instance is activated. Same goes for deactivate.

Methods that set but with a bang!

foo.activate!
foo.deactivate!

Bang methods, on the other hand, will raise AktibiboError if activated while active or deactivated while deactivated/inactive.

Boolean methods

foo.active?
foo.deactivated?
foo.inactive?

Scopes are provided for easy filtering

Foo.inactive # Returns all the inactive foos
Foo.activated # Returns all the active foos
Foo.deactivated # Returns all the deactivated foos

Activation and deactivation times are also accessible

foo.activated_at  # Fri, 29 Apr 2016 08:29:03 UTC +00:00
foo.deactivated_at # nil
