Dashboard Location ============================----version 1 beta by Zach Inglis // zachinglis.com I was wanting to implement Basecamp-like urls to a project I was working on and found that account_location was only half of my soloution while dashboard_location was only 3 quarters. Attached is a project-agnostic(no setting variables, do not worry) library for Rails. It is not the cleanest of libraries yet but I intend on improving it. It is only 1 day old so far. In controllers such as sessions_controller where you want people to be using the subdomain, use: before_filter :should_add_subdomain_for_home_if_logged_in before_filter :protect_controller_if_no_dashboard For controllers that should not be accessed through a subdomain, such as content controllers, use: before_filter :redirect_dashboard_calls That is it! Just use methods like logged_in anywhere you like and it will work as you hope. Credits: While I hacked the hell out of it, credits are still due. David Heinemeier Hansson - for account_location - http://dev.rubyonrails.org/svn/rails/plugins/account_location/ Derek Haynes - for his modifications - http://cleanair.highgroove.com/articles/2006/08/14/simplied-subdomain-authentication-in-ruby-on-rails Jon from Rails Spikes - for this post - http://railspikes.com/2008/5/1/quick-tip-store_location-with-subdomains Installation: Drag the dashboard_location.rb to your lib folder in your Rails directory. Perform: ruby ./script/generate model Home permalink:string name:string I use this in conjunction with Technoweenies permalink_fu to automatically generate the permalink. If you want to add the following code, else skip it: has_permalink :name Add this to your signup process.
