Nice generators for rails 3.

Installation

Add nice_generators to your Gemfile:

gem 'nice_generators'

Install it using bundle install

Run the following command to install some templates and the translation file (config/locales/nice.en.yml):

rails generate nice:install

Available generators

  • install generator
rails generate nice:install

This generator was already explained: it allows us to use nice_generators.

  • layout generator
rails generate nice:layout application

This generator creates a nice layout, similar to the default layout, but well-indented and displaying flashes. In addition, it generates a layout helper containing useful methods.

  • scaffold generator
rails generate nice:scaffold article title:string body:text

It's just like rails generate scaffold article title:string body:text, but with some nice features.

  • scaffold_controller generator
rails generate nice:scaffold_controller comment name:string body:text post_id:integer

It's just like rails generate scaffold_controller article name:string body:text post_id:integer, but with some nice features.

Features

  • Generated controllers are refactored
  • Generated controllers and views are fully i18n'ed
  • Generated controllers uses respond_to and respond_with
  • Generated views have titles (in rails default scaffold show view has no title)
  • Generated layouts are well-indented
  • Generated layouts displays the flashes
  • Layout generator also generates a layout helper, which contains useful methods for using in the layout
  • Generated views uses pretty page titles (See Railscasts episode 30)
  • Slim support (see below)

Integration with simple_form

You can use nice_generators along with simple_form. Simply run rails generate simple_form:install after running rails generate nice:install.

rails generate nice:install
rails generate simple_form:install

Slim templates

Change the template engine in config/application.rb

config.generators do |g|
  g.template_engine :slim
end
