Convenience classes to make using the databasedotcom gem with Rails apps even easier
gem install databasedotcom-rails
or, if you use Bundler
Databasedotcom::Rails::Controllerinto your RESTful controller
Create a YAML file at RAILS_ROOT/config/databasedotcom.yml file, like so
--- client_id: put-your-client-id-here client_secret: put-your-client-secret-here username: put-your-username-here password: put-your-password-here debugging: true
Alternatively, include a environment specific string: development: client_id: ... test: client_id: ... production: client_id: ...
YourModel.coerce_paramsbefore you pass parameters submitted from an HTML form to your materialized Sobject
class UsersController < ApplicationController include Databasedotcom::Rails::Controller before_filter :load_user, :except => [:index, :new] def index @users = User.all end def show end def new @user = User.new end def create User.create User.coerce_params(params[:user]) flash[:info] = "The user was created!" redirect_to users_path end def edit end def update @user.update_attributes User.coerce_params(params[:user]) flash[:info] = "The user was updated!" redirect_to user_path(@user) end def destroy @user.delete flash[:info] = "The user was deleted!" redirect_to users_path end private def load_user @user = User.find(params[:id]) end end
Note that there is no need to declare the
User model anywhere-
Databasedotcom::Rails::Controller recognizes it as a known Sobject type from your database.com instance, and materializes it automatically.
