A common gem for managing your carts and orders. RightnowOms is a rails mountable engine. It gets a lot of benifits from Ember.JS


Add the following gems to your Gemfile:

  gem 'jquery-rails'
  gem 'ember-rails'
  gem 'acts_as_api'
  gem 'haml-rails'

  group :assets do
    gem 'uglifier'
    gem 'coffee-rails'
    gem 'sass-rails'


Make sure that all requirements are met and add RightnowOms to your Gemfile.

  gem 'rightnow_oms'

and run bundle install


Mount RightnowOms to your application.

  # config/routes.rb
  mount RightnowOms::Engine => "rightnow_oms"

Create the migrations with:

  rake rightnow_oms:install:migrations
  rake db:migrate

Run bundle install and require ember and ember-data in your app/assets/javascripts/application.js:

  = require rightnow_oms/vendor/ember
  = require rightnow_oms/vendor/ember-data

Add the following line to your app/assets/javascripts/application.js:

  = require rightnow_oms/application

Add the stylesheets to your app/assets/stylesheets/application.css:

  = require rightnow_oms/application

Create a layout for your detailed cart view like:

  # app/views/layouts/rightnow_oms/cart.html.haml
      %title RightnowOms
      = stylesheet_link_tag    "application"
      = javascript_include_tag "application"
      = csrf_meta_tags

      = yield

Add before filters to your controllers which need to use the cart:

  # This before filter will create an instance variable @cart
  before_filter :load_or_create_cart

Create cartable models in your application:

class Product < ActiveRecord::Base

By default, Cart loads the name and price of cartable models by attributes named name and price. You can customize these attributes:

  acts_as_cartable { name: :your_name_attr, price: :your_price_attr }

Add a place holder for your cart in your views:

  <div id="rightnow-oms">
    <script type="text/x-handlebars">
      {{ view RightnowOms.ShowCartView }}

and load your cart in the view:

  $(function() {

You can add cartables to the cart by:

    cartable_id: 1,             // required
    cartable_type: 'Product',   // required
    price: '10.00',             // required

    // optional, indicating this is a child node of another one
    parent_id: 2,

    // optional, grouping cart items
    group: 'booking'
  }, function(cartItem) {
    // Do something after the cart item is created

Now you have all things done. Wish you have a good day.


RightnowOms is developed with Ruby 1.9.3-p0 and Rails 3.1.3

First of all, you need to create a database config for RightnowOms. There are already some useful templates for you under spec/dummy/config/. RightnowOms use PostgreSQL by default. If you want to setup other databases, for example mysql, you need to modify the Gemfile by yourself.

  bundle install
  bundle exec rake app:db:migrate
  bundle exec rake app:db:seed

  # Run the tests. Please make sure you have firefox installed
  bundle exec rake app:db:test:prepare

  # Start the dummy application
  rails s
