I'm trying to clean up some of my sloppy code, and one of the things I'm working on is trying to make this huge group of variables a bit more elegant. My variables look like this: @business_core_courses = Category.find_by_title('business_core_courses').courses @written_communication = Category.find_by_title('written_communication').courses Etc... It seems like there is a lot of repition going on, and that this could be cleaned up somehow. the "business_core_courses" and "written_communication" are both just values in a field name 'title' in the table 'categories' I was thinking it would look something along the lines of this: Categories.title.each do |column| @category.title = Category.find_by_title('category.title').courses end But I'm not too sure what the right syntax to use is. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
