acts_as_ordinalized

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.

Example

  • works with normal querries

    class Ordinalized < ActiveRecord::Base
      acts_as_ordinalized
    end
    ordinalized_collection = Ordinalized.all
    ordinalized_collection.first.ordinal_number
    => 1
    ordinalized_collection[1].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.
