# Scaffolding is a way to quickly put an Active Record class online by providing a series of standardized actions
# for listing, showing, creating, updating, and destroying objects of the class. These standardized actions come
# with both controller logic and default templates that through introspection already know which fields to display
# and which input types to use. Example:
#
# class WeblogController < ActionController::Base
# scaffold :entry
# end
#
# This tiny piece of code will add all of the following methods to the controller:
#
# class WeblogController < ActionController::Base
# def index
# list
# end
#
# def list
# @entries = Entry.find_all
# render_scaffold "list"
# end
#
# def show
# @entry = Entry.find(@params["id"])
# render_scaffold
# end
#
# def destroy
# Entry.find(@params["id"]).destroy
# redirect_to :action => "list"
# end
#
# def new
# @entry = Entry.new
# render_scaffold
# end
#
# def create
# @entry = Entry.new(@params["entry"])
# if @entry.save
# flash["notice"] = "Entry was successfully created"
# redirect_to :action => "list"
# else
# render "entry/new"
# end
# end
#
# def edit
# @entry = Entry.find(@params["id"])
# render_scaffold
# end
#
# def update
# @entry = Entry.find(@params["entry"]["id"])
# @entry.attributes = @params["entry"]
#
# if @entry.save
# flash["notice"] = "Entry was successfully updated"
# redirect_to :action => "show/" + @entry.id.to_s
# else
# render "entry/edit"
# end
# end
# end
#
# The <tt>render_scaffold</tt> method will first check to see if you've made your own template (like "weblog/show.rhtml" for
# the show action) and if not, then render the generic template for that action. This gives you the possibility of using the
# scaffold while you're building your specific application. Start out with a totally generic setup, then replace one template
# and one action at a time while relying on the rest of the scaffolded templates and actions.
module ClassMethods
# Adds a swath of generic CRUD actions to the controller. The +model_id+ is automatically converted into a class name unless
# one is specifically provide through <tt>options[:class_name]</tt>. So <tt>scaffold :post</tt> would use Post as the class
# and @post/@posts for the instance variables.
#
# It's possible to use more than one scaffold in a single controller by specifying <tt>options[:suffix] = true</tt>. This will
# make <tt>scaffold :post, :suffix => true</tt> use method names like list_post, show_post, and create_post
# instead of just list, show, and post. If suffix is used, then no index method is added.
