SimpleResource speeds up development of standard Rails applications by integrating Inherited Resources, inherited views and form builders together.
- Everything is customizable application-wide and per resource
- Internationalization support
- Support for your own form builders
- Support for external form builders
- Support for CanCan
- Ruby 1.9 or greater
- Rails 3.2 or greater
Add this line to your application’s Gemfile:
And then execute:
Inherit your resource controllers from SimpleResource::BaseController. For example:
class ProjectsController < :: end
That’s it. Your resource now uses Formtastic as a form builder, views from SimpleResource and restful actions from Inherited Resources.
Configuring form builder
You can configure which form builders you want to use. Configuration can be done application-wide or per resource.
For example, if you like to use simple_form by default for all your resources, configure the builder in the app/views/simple_resource/_form.html.erb:
<%= render_form "simple_form" %>
If you like to use simple_form only for products resource, put the above line into the app/views/products/_form.html.erb.
Creating own form builder
Put your form builder into the app/views/simple_resource/builders/_my_builder.html.erb:
<form> <% fields.each do |field| %> <%= input_field_tag(field) %> <% end %> <%= submit_tag "Submit" %> </form>
Then use it (see section “Configuring form builder”):
<%= render_form "my_builder" %>
You may override SimpleResource views application-wide or per resource.
