ActiveRecord Validations without ActiveRecord? No problem.
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install pseudo_model
If you want to build form with validations, but you don't need store data to database, this is for you.
For instance, you want calculation request form.
Create app/model/calculation_request.rb and define class from PseudoModel::Base
CalculationRequest < PseudoModel::Base attr_acessor :name, :message validates :message, :presence => true end
Now you can use
calc_request = CalculationRequest.new calc_request.valid? #=> false calc_request.message = "Hello, I want to know how much..." calc_request.valid? #=> true
In controller you can simply do:
def new @calculation_request = CalculcationRequest.new end def create @calculation_request = CalculcationRequest.new(params[:calculation_request]) if @calculation_request.valid? # send email or something else render :new end end
Building a form is simple as that:
<%= form_for @calculation_request do |f| %> ... <% end %>
