Acts As Hasselhoff

The Hoff

Your application is now powered by HOFF!!!

CAUTION: with great chest hair comes great responsibility.


Add this line to your Rails application's Gemfile:

gem 'acts_as_hasselhoff'

And then execute:

$ bundle


Once the gem is part of your Rails app it's pretty simple to use.

Just find a model you would like to have act as Hasselhoff and add:

# app/models/post.rb

class Post < ActiveRecord::Base

Now go save a Post.

The Truth

The hoff idea was stolen from James Adam's original acts_as_hasselhoff plugin. I felt the burning need to make it work with Rails 4 and above so here it is.


  1. Fork it ( )
  2. Create your feature branch (git checkout -b my-new-feature)
  3. Commit your changes (git commit -am 'Add some feature')
  4. Push to the branch (git push origin my-new-feature)
  5. Create a new Pull Request
