Welcome to Active Salesforce
ActiveSalesforce is an extension to the Rails Framework that allows for the dynamic creation and management of ActiveRecord objects through the use of Salesforce meta-data and uses a Salesforce.com organization as the backing store.
gem install activesalesforce
if you have not already done so generate your initial rails app using “rails <myappname goes here>”
edit config/environment.rb and add “require_gem 'activesalesforce'” to the end of the “Rails::Initializer.run do |config|” block, e.g.
Rails::Initializer.run do |config| …
require 'activesalesforce' end
url: https://www.salesforce.com username: <salesforce user name goes here> password: <salesforce password goes here> NOTE: If you want to access your Salesforce Sandbox account use https://test.salesforce.com as your url instead
proceed using standard Rails development techniques!
