module Conversion
# If your object is already designed to implement all of the Active Model
# you can use the default <tt>:to_model</tt> implementation, which simply
# returns self.
#
# If your model does not act like an Active Model object, then you should
# define <tt>:to_model</tt> yourself returning a proxy object that wraps
# your object with Active Model compliant methods.
def to_model
self
end
# Returns an Enumerable of all key attributes if any is set, regardless
# if the object is persisted or not.
#
# Note the default implementation uses persisted? just because all objects
# in Ruby 1.8.x responds to <tt>:id</tt>.
def to_key
persisted? ? [id] : nil
end
# Returns a string representing the object's key suitable for use in URLs,
# or nil if <tt>persisted?</tt> is false.
def to_param
persisted? ? to_key.join('-') : nil
