ActiveResourceChangeable

As ActiveRecord provides you to get all the changes of your unsaved object, active_resource_changeable gem also serves the same purpose by calling its changes method.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'active_resource_changeable'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install active_resource_changeable

Usage

include ActiveResourceChangeable

into your model and then you can call changes method on its objects. For example.

class User < ActiveResource::Base
  self.site = ""

  include ActiveResourceChangeable

end

user = User.find(1)
user.firstname = "Neeraj1"
user.lastname = "Kumar1"
user.email = "neeraj1.kumar1@mailinator.com"
user.username = "neeraj1"

user.changes = {"firstname"=>["Neeraj", "Neeraj1"], "lastname"=>["Kumar", "Kumar1"], "username=>["neeraj", "neeraj1], "email"=>["neeraj.kumar@mailinator.com", "neeraj1.kumar@mailinator.com"]}

ActiveResourceChangeable works for nested ActiveResource objects too and gives the result something like

{"companyName"=>["Skipped Levels 034", "ABC Company"],
 "address"=>{""=>{"line1"=>["1234 Skipped Levels 034", "line1"]}, "countryType"=>{"code"=>["DEU", "IND"]}},
 "countryType"=>{""=>{"code"=>["DEU", "IND"]}},
 "statusType"=>{""=>{"code"=>["A", "B"]}}}
