I'm trying to get acts_as_archive with Rails 3.0.0 and Ruby 1.9.2. When I use gem 'acts_as_archive' in the Gemfile, and add the acts_as_archive line in my model, I get this error when trying to query the archive (I ran rake db:migrate but it didn't look like any migrations were run):
ruby-1.9.2-p0 > Shareable::Archive.first
NameError: undefined local variable or method `acts_as_archive' for #<Class:0x0000010451ce58>
Also tried to install the Gem from Github with gem 'acts_as_archive', :git => 'git://github.com/winton/acts_as_archive.git' and got this error:
gem 'acts_as_archive', :git => 'git://github.com/winton/acts_as_archive.git'
`/Users/xxx/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.2-p0@rails3/bundler/gems/acts_as_archive-fab88766f555/lib/acts_as_archive/gems.rb:118:in `dependency_filter': undefined method `inject' for "nil":String (NoMethodError)`
I'm probably missing something simple here, but can't quite figure it out. Any help would definitely be appreciated.
Can you check if the "archived_xxx" tables were generated after rake db:migrate?
Just saying cause I am having that exact problem. I'm trying to have a look at "also_migrate"...
It seems a matter of classes, when running rake db:migrate, the model classes which require a migration, need to be loaded at some point, so that "also_migrate" can pick them up.
I tried this using a pseudo migration, empty, except for some "require 'app/models/....rb'" at the file start. And it works.
I'm pretty sure the archive tables weren't created - can't verify because unfortunately I deleted the branch. Your note regarding requiring the model classes makes sense, I was wondering how it was going to pick those up, but hadn't bothered to look into the code.
@axs89: Not sure why the gem isn't loading for you. I've been executing specs under Ruby 1.9.2 and Rails 3. I will see if I can find something for you.
@echarp: You've identified a problem with also_migrate that seems to only be solved by setting $rails_rake_task = false, which forces rake to preload all activerecord classes. I'm not sure at this point if its best to put that code in the plugin or not. Coming up with a solution to that now.
@axs89: I have tested using a fresh project, Rails 3.0.3, and Ruby 1.9.2-p136 and cannot replicate your problem of acts_as_archive not being defined. Without any more information I am closing this ticket.
@echarp: In the latest version of acts_as_archive, I have added the $rails_rake_task = false flag. Let me know if any problems arise from this.
