ActiveRecordBaseWithoutTable

Get the power of ActiveRecord models, including validation, without having a table in the database. This plugin now works with Rails 2.2.2.

Installation

Gem

Rails::Initializer.run do |config|
  # ...
  config.gem 'splattael-activerecord_base_without_table', :lib    => 'activerecord_base_without_table',
                                                          :source => 'http://gems.github.com'

  # ...
end

Rails plugin

script/plugin install git://github.com/splattael/activerecord_base_without_table.git

Usage

class Contact < ActiveRecord::BaseWithoutTable
  column :name, :string
  column :email_address, :string
  column :message, :text

  validates_presence_of :name, :email_address, :string
end

This model can be used just like a regular model based on a table, except it will never be saved to the database.
