Manage custom fields to a Mongoid document or a collection. This module is one of the core features we implemented in our custom CMS, named LocomotiveCMS. Basically, its aim is to provide to editors a way to manage extra fields to a Mongoid document through, for instance, a web UI.
The main goals:
- Offering a very secure way to add, edit and delete extra fields to a Mongoid document.
- Scoping the modifications added to a Mongoid document, so that other documents of the same class won't be updated.
- MongoDB 2.x
- Mongoid 4.x
- ActiveSupport 4.2.x
