Acts_as_nested_set


#1

Where can I see the API acts_as_nested_set constructs? I’ve read its
page in api.rubyonrails.com but I don’t see how to manage the tree
from there.

Xavier,

Open the source file, its in the acts directory under activerecord.
To get some idea of how to use it, read the comments in that file.
I will probably work on another screencast to demonstrate how to use it
since its very similar to my acts_as_threaded plugin. So similar in
fact,
you may learn something by viewing my acts as threaded screencast,
although
the acts_as_threaded goes a little further to automate the parent_child
relationship. Inside the acts_as_nested_set.rb file, there is a URL you
can
go to and find out more about the nested_set model in general.

See my patch http://dev.rubyonrails.org/ticket/2795 that adds some
necessary methods.
I’ll move it as engine or plugin as soon as possible.
