Condition metadata / dyanmic conditions


#1

Hello,

Is there a plugin / gem out there that would help me construct a dynamic
set of conditions for a finder?

In other words, I have a user with multiple attributes (some 50+). I
have other users that want to express preferences for befriending users
based on criteria (which I’d like to store) such as specific interests,
personality types, etc. (both values, ranges)

The scenario I’m confused about is how do you construct the finder for
something like this

User.find(:all, :conditions => [“not sure what goes here because it’ll
be different for each user”,
current_user.preferences.attributes.collect(&:id)])

you get the idea …

Thank you.
