Common tools used in rails extracted into a gem.
I did this gem to:
- Make features I commonly need work nice together.
- Have an extensible container to continue adding new general purpose tools.
Put this line in your Gemfile:
New callbacks before, after, around render are available:
class ProductsController < ApplicationController before_action :set_product before_render :prepare_product def edit end private def set_product @product = Product.find(params[:id]) end def prepare_product @product.build_picture end end
Text email templates will normalize spaces and new lines like html:
<% if @order.confirmed? %> Your order has been confirmed. Will be delivered right the way. <% end %>
Your order has been confirmed. Will be delivered right the way.
New content_tag_if method to wrap content into some tag if certain condition it's true:
<%= content_tag_if request.path == home_path, :h1 do %> <%= link_to 'Home', home_path, id: 'logo' %> <% end %>
New active_trail? method to check if some path is on active trail:
<li class="<%= 'active' if active_trail? some_path %>"></li>
New extending method to extend layouts:
<%= extending :application do %> <p>content</p> <% end %>
Ruby template handlers will automatically call to_json or to_xml:
@users.map do |user| user.slice :name end
Empty strings will be nilify in the database to avoid sql errors or complex queries:
shop = Shop.new(name: '') shop.save shop.name # Will be nil
New method validate is available to allow a more expressive syntax:
New complexity validator to avoid weak passwords:
class User < ActiveRecord::Base validates_complexity_of :password end
New time validator to validate Date/Time using after, after_or_equal_to, before or before_or_equal_to:
class Schedule < ActiveRecord::Base validates_time_of :opens_at validates_time_of :closes_at, after: :opens_at end
New count validator to express count messages using minimum, maximum, in o within:
class Product < ActiveRecord::Base validates_count_of :pictures, minimum: 1, maximum: 4 end
NOTE: Take a look at lib/tuning/locales to know the i18n keys.
Any issue, pull request, comment of any kind is more than welcome!
I will mainly ensure compatibility to PostgreSQL, AWS, Redis, Elasticsearch, FreeBSD and Memcached.
