Build Status Code Climate

Straightforward review/rating functionality.


Installation

Spree >= 3.1

gem 'spree_reviews', github: 'spree-contrib/spree_reviews'

Spree 3.0 and Spree 2.x

 gem 'spree_reviews', github: 'spree-contrib/spree_reviews', branch: 'X-X-stable'

The branch option is important: it must match the version of Spree you're using. For example, use 3-0-stable if you're using Spree 3-0-stable or any 3.0.x version.

Now bundle up with:

bundle

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

bundle exec rails g spree_reviews:install

And finish with a migrate:

bundle exec rake db:migrate

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

bundle exec rails s

That's all!


Usage

Action "submit" in "reviews" controller - goes to review entry form

Users must be logged in to submit a review

Three partials:

  • app/views/spree/products/_rating.html.erb -- display number of stars
  • app/views/spree/products/_shortrating.html.erb -- shorter version of above
  • app/views/spree/products/_review.html.erb -- display a single review

Administrator can edit and/or approve and/or delete reviews.

Implementation

Reviews table is quite obvious - and note the "approved" flag which is for the administrator to update.

Ratings table holds current fractional value - avoids frequent recalc...


Discussion

Some points which might need modification in future:

  • I don't track the actual user on a review (just their "screen name" at the time), but we may want to use this information to avoid duplicate reviews etc. See https://github.com/spree/spree_reviews/issues/18
  • Rating votes are tied to a review, to avoid spam. However: ratings are accepted whether or not the review is accepted. Perhaps they should only be counted when the review is approved.
