I'd be interested in giving access to this main repository for any interested in maintaining it and/or adding features. Please contact me if you are interested at steph at endpoint dot com.
Rails Admin Import functionality
Plugin functionality to add generic import to Rails Admin interface
First, add to Gemfile:
Next, mount in your application by adding following line to your config/routes.rb:
mount RailsAdminImport::Engine => '/rails_admin_import', :as => 'rails_admin_import'
If you are using cancan, add to ability.rb to specify which models can be imported:
can :import, [User, Model1, Model2]
Define configuration in config/initializers/rails_admin_import.rb:
RailsAdminImport.config do |config| config.model User do excluded_fields do [:field1, :field2, :field3] end label :name extra_fields do [:field3, :field4, :field5] end end end
(Optional) Define instance methods to be hooked into the import process, if special/additional processing is required on the data:
# some model def before_import_save(row, map) # Your custom special sauce end def after_import_save(row, map) # Your custom special sauce end
"import" action must be added inside config.actions block in main application RailsAdmin configuration: config/initializers/rails_admin.rb.
config.actions do ... import ... end
Refer to RailAdmin documentation on custom actions that must be present in this block.
TODO: Right now, import doesn't work for fields ending in s, because inflector fails in models ending in s singularly. Belongs_to and many mapping needs to be updated to use klasses instead of symbols
