= acts_as_audited acts_as_audited is an ActiveRecord extension that logs all changes to your models in an audits table. The purpose of this fork is to store both the previous values and the changed value, making each audit record selfcontained. == Installation * acts_as_audited can be installed as a gem: # config/environment.rb config.gem 'acts_as_audited', :lib => false, :source => 'http://gemcutter.org' or a plugin: script/plugin install git://github.com/collectiveidea/acts_as_audited.git * Generate the migration script/generate audited_migration add_audits_table rake db:migrate == Usage Declare <tt>acts_as_audited</tt> on your models: class User < ActiveRecord::Base acts_as_audited :except => [:password, :mistress] end Within a web request, will automatically record the user that made the change if your controller has a <tt>current_user</tt> method. To record a user in the audits outside of a web request, you can use <tt>as_user</tt>: Audit.as_user(user) do # Perform changes on audited models end == Caveats If your model declares +attr_accessible+ after +acts_as_audited+, you need to set +:protect+ to false. acts_as_audited uses +attr_protected+ internally to prevent malicious users from unassociating your audits, and Rails does not allow both +attr_protected+ and +attr_accessible+. It will default to false if +attr_accessible+ is called before +acts_as_audited+, but needs to be explicitly set if it is called after. class User < ActiveRecord::Base acts_as_audited :protect => false attr_accessible :name end 12/21/10: There have been no tests written for any of the new features. There's just been no time. == Compatability acts_as_audited works with Rails 2.1 or later. == Getting Help Join the mailing list for getting help or offering suggestions: http://groups.google.com/group/acts_as_audited == Contributing Contributions are always welcome.
