Dynamic Scaffold Resource Rails plugin is officially Alpha

Posted by Tim Connor Tue, 17 Oct 2006 23:44:00 GMT

My first Rails plugin, DynamicScaffoldResource has hit 0.1 – it now should handle all the basic REST actions almost identically to the generated scaffold_resource. The main difference is it uses the ActiveRecordHelper form() call to dynamically generate the forms, and auto-iterates over the columns on index and show, just like the offcial scaffolding. This is more fitting for the dynamic scaffolding than the blank form approach of the generator, which makes sense for that, since you will be filling that in manually.

If anyone is interested the subversion repository is up at http://svn.infosauce.org and trac is at http://trac.infosauce.org

It is still completely undocumented and untested, but those are the plans for the next release. Knowing what else needs to be fixed it probably won’t be before 0.4 or 0.5 before I’d say it’s public ready. For instance, it still requires you to have these patches applied.
