Drag-Drop Sortable for ActiveScaffold

The master branch is compatible with rails 2.3. For Rails 2.2 compatibility, use the rails-2.2 branch.

Overview

This plugin enables those slicker-than-snot ajax drag-drop sortable elements on your active-scaffold page, with so little configuration you almost get it for free.

Installation

You’ll need the corresponding branch of ActiveScaffold to use this.

# rails 2.0
git clone git://github.com/activescaffold/active_scaffold_sortable.git vendor/plugins/active_scaffold_sortable

Usage

Step 1

Create a model with a column named ‘position’:

# app/models/entry.rb

# id           integer
# title        string(255)
# birthday     date
# position     integer

class Entry < ActiveRecord::Base
end

Step 2

Create your scaffold controller

# app/controllers/entries_controller.rb

class EntryController < ApplicationController
  active_scaffold :entries do |config|
    config.actions << :sortable
  end
end

and layout

# app/views/layouts/application.rhtml
<html>
<head>
  <title>active scaffold demo application</title>
  <%= javascript_include_tag :defaults %>
  <%= active_scaffold_includes %>
</head>
<body>
  <%= yield %>
</body>
</html>

Step 3

If you’re using restful routes, append this to your route in routes.rb:

  map.resources :tasks, :active_scaffold => true, :active_scaffold_sortable => true

Notice:

If you’d like to use a different column name, put this line in your controller:

...
active_scaffold :entries do |config|
  config.sortable.column = :position
end
...
