MMG is intended for use with the MongoMapper rubygem. Use it to generate Document and EmbeddedDocument models. Also included is a generator for a rails initializer.
MongoMapperGenerators is only released on gemcutter. To install, you can setup gemcutter as your default gem source.
$ gem install gemcutter $ gem tumble
Then you can install MMG:
$ gem install mongo_mapper_generators
You can also just declare the source:
$ gem install mongo_mapper_generators -s http://gemcutter.org
Once you install the gem, the generators will be available to all Rails applications on your system. If you run script/generate without any additional arguments you should see the available generators listed.
To run the generator, go to your rails project directory and call it using the script/generate or script/destroy command.
script/generate mongo_model Person name:string email:string age:integer
It will generate the model, a unit test and a factory.
Generators also exist for generating EmbeddedDocument models as well as a rails initializer.
Note on Patches/Pull Requests
Fork the project.
Make your feature addition or bug fix.
Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
