Straightforward review/rating functionality.


Installation

Add the following to your Gemfile to install from git:

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

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!

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.
