- Defined in:
Models is an empty Ruby module for housing model classes derived from ActiveRecord::Base. As a shortcut, you may derive from Base which is an alias for ActiveRecord::Base.
module ::Models class Post < ; belongs_to :user end class User < ; has_many :posts end end
Where Models are Used
Models are used in your controller classes. However, if your model class name conflicts with a controller class name, you will need to refer to it using the Models module.
module :: class Post < R '/post/(\d+)' def get(post_id) @post = Models::Post.find post_id render :index end end end
Models cannot be referred to in Views at this time.
