Forked Version of Nifty Generators

A collection of useful Rails generator scripts.

Install

gem install twilson63-nifty-generators

Forked changes

Added jrs template pattern to the haml files, as well as added a new flag called ajaxify that will allow you to add the ajaxified pattern to the controller and views.

Usage

Once you install the gem, the generators will be available to all Rails applications on your system. If you run script/generate without any additional arguments you should see the available generators listed.

To run the generator, go to your rails project directory and call it using the script/generate or script/destroy command.

script/generate nifty_scaffold Recipe name:string index new

Included Generators

  • nifty_layout: generates generic layout, stylesheet, and helper files.

  • nifty_scaffold: generates a controller and optional model/migration.

  • nifty_config: generates a config YAML file and loader.

  • nifty_authentication: generates user model with sign up and log in.

Run the command with the --help option to learn more.

script/generate nifty_layout --help

Troubleshooting

I get “undefined method 'title'” error.

Try running nifty_layout, that will generate this helper method. Or you can just change the templates to whatever approach you prefer for setting the title.

I get “undefined method 'root_url'” error.

Some generators default redirecting to the root_url. Set this in your routes.rb file like this (substituting your controller name).

map.root :controller => 'foo'

I get a missing database error.

Run rake db:migrate.

Forms don't work.

Try restarting your development server. Sometimes it doesn't detect the change in the routing.

I can't set new attributes in my User model.

Add the attribute to the attr_accessible line in the model.

The tests/specs don't work.

Make sure you have mocha installed and require it in your spec/test helper.

gem install mocha

# in spec_helper.rb
config.mock_with :mocha

# in test_helper.rb
require 'mocha'

Also, make sure you're using Rails 2.1 or greater.

If you wish the generators behaved differently, please consider forking the project and modifying to your heart's content.
