TKH Admin Panel

This is a Rails engine with an admin panel layout, assets and basic functionality. Powered by Twitter Bootstrap + SASS for a modern responsive design.

Primarily developed for Ten Thousand Hours but we are happy to share if anybody finds it useful. It's primarily developed to work in sync with the tkh_cms gem suite but over time more and more effort will be made to make it work in isolation.

Please note that this gem is still in its infancy. I'm just getting started.


For use with Rails 3, add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'tkh_admin_panel', '< 0.9'

For Rails 4 ...

gem 'tkh_admin_panel', '~> 0.9'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Install the admin_sidebar partial

    $ rake tkh_admin_panel:setup

Run the migrations

    $ rake db:migrate

Start or restart your server!

    $ rails s


Update the gem:

$ bundle update tkh_admin_panel

Update locale files.

    $ rake tkh_admin_panel:update

Run new migrations if any

    $ rake db:migrate

Start or restart your server!

    $ rails s


You need an authentication system with the current_user helper method


Add this to your controller's relevant methods:
