A replacement for ActiveRecord when you just need to model a few unchanging objects, and don't necessarily need a full blown ActiveRecord class and table in the database. Use with reservation.
some basic ActiveRecord style finders
dynamic attribute based finders, supporting basic comparisons as well regular expressions and ranges
some integrated ActiveRecord associactions, ie: ActiveRecord#belongs_to(:passive_record) PassiveRecord#has_many(:active_records) (excluding has_many :through)
extend find options like :conditions, :order
find(:first) (depends on :order being implemented)
better documentation of the code
fix warnings in tests
class Continent < :: has_many :countries # => an ActiveRecord class schema :name => String, :size => Integer, :population => Integer create :name => "Africa", :size => 30370000, :population => 890000000 create :name => "Antarctica", :size => 13720000, :population => 1000 create :name => "Australia", :size => 7600000, :population => 20000000 create :name => "Eurasia", :size => 53990000, :population => 4510000000 create :name => "North America", :size => 24490000, :population => 515000000 create :name => "South America", :size => 17840000, :population => 371000000 end Continent.find(1) # => Africa Continent.find_by_name("Africa") # => Yes, also Africa Continent.find_by_name_and_size(/America/, 17840000) # => South America Continent.find_all_by_population(1000..20000000) # => Antarctica and Australia Continent.find(:all) # => All 6 (though not in any particular order, yet)
