ActiveResources 0.1.0 Released

See the blog post at
http://blog.lonestarsoftware.net/2007/03/09/active_resources-010-released/

Reading through the rails blogosphere last week, I read a post (which
I can not find again) that suggested a completely different approach
to AJAX use in rails apps. The idea was to create a Javascript proxy
to the ActiveRecord models and allow AR operations to be called from
the client.

I see this functionality broken into 3 major components:

  • Route generator which creates RESTful resources and nested
    resources based on a given AR model
  • Abstract controller providing basic CRUD and Finder functionality
  • Javascript proxy library interfacing to the controller API

Today’s release of ActiveResources, version 0.1.0, provides the first
bit of functionality (route generator). The plugin has 100% test
coverage and passes heckling with no mutations remaining. It is in the
very early stages, but I want to start gathering feedback on the
interface and functionality so that this plugin may eventually be as
useful as possible.

Would it maybe be better to come up with a different name to avoid
confusion with ActiveResource [1]?

Thanks for letting me know about that. I should have done more
research before settling on a name. However, that project and this one
definitely share some common goals. Perhaps one day, it’ll all blend
together. For now, let me think about what can be done…

Actually they’re completely different, ActiveResource is for consuming
the very restful resources you’re exposing.

I saw that you have also released mock active record. What is the need
for
mocking ActiveRecord objects?

Hi Rick,

My future plans for this plugin include an abstract controller and a
javascript proxy library for consuming the services. A ruby proxy
library would be a great thing to have as well.

I use that for my test suite in active_record. I don’t want to
actually create a DB in order to test that the routes are generated
correctly.
