This is a simple acts_as gem providing the active record models with ordinal numbers. The ordinals numbering is per query, but should work nicely with will paginate showing correct ordinal numbers on paginated results.
works with normal querries
class Ordinalized < ActiveRecord::Base acts_as_ordinalized end ordinalized_collection = Ordinalized.all ordinalized_collection.first.ordinal_number => 1 ordinalized_collection.ordinal_number => 2
works with will_paginate
paginated_collection = Ordinalized.paginate(:page => 2, :per_page => 10) paginated_collection.first.ordinal_number => 11
works with sphinx
class OrdinalizedWithSphinx < ActiveRecord::Base acts_as_ordinalized :wrapped_methods => :search define_index do ... end end sphinx_collection = OrdinalizedWithSphinx.search sphinx_collection.first.ordinal_number => 1
Note on Patches/Pull Requests
Fork the project.
Make your feature addition or bug fix.
Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
