Scam

Really basic model-ish thing for creating different types in your application easily.

I use this whenever I want something to do psuedo belongs to/has many relationships, but do not want to back a model with a database as the data does not change often, if ever.

Usage

Just create a class and include scam.

class FeedTemplate
  include Scam

  attr_accessor :title, :icon, :instructions, :template, :format, :label

  def expand(value)
    url = template.gsub('{value}', URI.escape(value))
    url = "http://#{url}" if url !~ /https?\:\/\//
    url
  end

  def parse(body)
    case format
      when 'json'
        ActiveSupport::JSON.decode(body)
      when 'feed'
        Feedzirra::Feed.parse(body).to_hash
    end
  end
end

FeedTemplate.create({
  :id           => 1,
  :title        => 'Twitter',
  :label        => 'Twitter Username',
  :icon         => 'twitter',
  :instructions => 'Enter your Twitter username',
  :format       => 'json',
  :template     => 'http://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline/{value}.json',
})

Attributes are just defined using attr_accessor. :id is added when you include Scam.

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.
