RailsAdmin is a Rails engine that provides an easy-to-use interface for managing your data.
for those with
rake db:migrateerrors, update to master and check that you see the line: "[RailsAdmin] RailsAdmin initialization disabled by default." when you launch the task. If not (or if migrations still don't work), open a ticket with an application on Github that can reproduce the issue.
config.models do ... endis deprecated (note the 's' to models,
config.model(MyModel) do .. endis fine), for performance reasons (forces early loading of all application's models). Duplicate to each model instead, before next release. If you really need the old behavior:
config.models.each do |m| config.model m do # <<<< here goes your code end end

Gemfile, add the following dependencies:
gem 'fastercsv' # Only required on Ruby 1.8 and below gem 'rails_admin'
$ bundle install
And then run:
$ rails g rails_admin:install
This generator will install RailsAdmin and Devise if you don't already have it installed. Devise is strongly recommended to protect your data from anonymous users. Note: If you do not already have Devise installed, make sure you remove the registerable module from the generated user model.
It will modify your
mount RailsAdmin::Engine => '/admin', :as => 'rails_admin' # Feel free to change '/admin' to any namespace you need.
devise_for route must be placed before the mounted engine. The following will generate infinite redirects.
mount RailsAdmin::Engine => '/admin', :as => 'rails_admin' devise_for :admins
This will resolve the infinite redirect error:
devise_for :admins mount RailsAdmin::Engine => '/rails_admin', :as => 'rails_admin'
See #715 for more details.
It will also add an intializer that will help you getting started. (head for config/initializers/rails_admin.rb)
$ bundle exec rake db:migrate
