Yawl Rails

This is the UI and Rails integration component of yawl

Install Migrations

For rails versions >= 4, the engine should automatically hook into Rails and allow you to just run rake db:migrate.

For rails 3, migrations should be installed in the target app:

rake yawl_rails:install:migrations

Review the generated migrations then migrate:

rake db:migrate


I like to mount the engine at the root, so the following would work but you can also mount it anywhere you see fit.

mount YawlRails::Engine, at: "/"


Extra config variables added:

  • Yawl::Config.pagination_per_page: Number of processes to list per page


It's currently setup so that you need to use haml in yawl_rails and assumes that you want to share your layout with it to maintain an integrated look. One caveat is that it's using bootstrap 2--maybe a rails4 only engine + bootstrap 3 is in the future?.
