How to Configure this Fork with Rails 3

A guide is at
for rails 3.0: http://vhochstein.wordpress.com/2010/08/28/setup-activescaffold-rails-3/

for rails 3.1 and 3.2: http://vhochstein.wordpress.com/2011/07/09/activescaffold-and-rails-3-1/

If you are in a hurry, you may try one-step installation (does nt work currently)


Relation to activescaffold/activescaffold

As you can see in the network graph this fork started to exist round about June 2010. Unfortunetly, the code differences are too big to merge them from time to time, which means that new feature and bugfixes are not shared!

In case you are effected by a bug which is already fixed in activescaffold/activescaffold, it would be great if you could send me a pull request. Thanks a lot in advance

Renamed Attributes

  • update_column => update_columns (because you may specify more than one column)

Changed Methods

  • added record parameter to member/record based actionlink authorization methods in controller, eg. *update_authorized?(record = nil)*
  • column overrides method name *without* controller_name

Restful Scaffolding

Old syntax

map.resources :users, :active_scaffold => true

New syntax:

resources :users do 
    # If you use RecordSelect plugin, also add
    #     collection do
    #       get :browse
    #     end
    #     member do
    #       post :select
    #     end
