This Gem adds a json:api to a rails application which is build with dry_crud.

Currently only read operations are implmeneted.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'dry_crud_jsonapi'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install dry_crud_jsonapi


Include the module DryCrudJsonapi in all controller you want to expose on the json:api

class EmployeesController < CrudController
  include DryCrudJsonapi


The controller must implement (or inherit) at least the following methods:

  • model_class
  • entry
  • entries

Consult the dry_crud sourcecode about how these work, or just inherit your controller from dry_crud's CrudController.


After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake spec to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to rubygems.org.
