Solidus Reviews


Straightforward review/rating functionality, updated for Solidus.

While the gem's name has changed, the module namespace and commands are still spree for now.


Add the following to your Gemfile to install from git:

gem 'solidus_reviews', github: 'solidusio-contrib/solidus_reviews'

Now bundle up with:

$ bundle

Next, run the rake task that copies the necessary migrations and assets to your project:

$ rails g solidus_reviews:install

And finish with a migrate:

$ rake db:migrate

Now you should be able to boot up your server with:

$ rails s

That's all!


The Spree::ReviewsController controller provides all the CRUD functionality for product reviews.

The Spree::FeedbackReviewsController allows user to express their feedback on a specific review. You can think of these as meta-reviews (e.g. the classic "Was this useful?" modal).

You can approve, edit and delete reviews and feedback reviews from the backend.


If you want factories for our models available in your application, simply require our factories in your spec_helper.rb:

require 'solidus_reviews/factories'

Testing the extension

First bundle your dependencies, then run bin/rake. bin/rake will default to building the dummy

app if it does not exist, then it will run specs. The dummy app can be regenerated by using bin/rake extension:test_app.


To run Rubocop static code analysis run

bundle exec rubocop

Running the sandbox

To run this extension in a sandboxed Solidus application, you can run bin/sandbox. The path for

the sandbox app is ./sandbox and bin/rails will forward any Rails commands to sandbox/bin/rails.

Here's an example:

$ bin/rails server
=> Booting Puma
=> Rails application starting in development
* Listening on tcp://
Use Ctrl-C to stop

Updating the changelog

Before and after releases the changelog should be updated to reflect the up-to-date status of the project:

bin/rake changelog
git add
git commit -m "Update the changelog"
