I was wondering how could you create a model that is tied to all the
records in one table, and retrieves the values of all records on first
load, and also handles the updating of its values.
For example, suppose I have this table:
id INT(11) PK
group name value
main something 123
users expire 45
Then, I’d like very much to do something like this in Rails:
Settings.main.something = 34
a = Settings.users.expire
And also being able to override default behaviors, because maybe I’d
want to do something special each time a specific setting is changed.
Currently, I’m just defining a method for each setting, but I keep
thinking there must be a better way.
Thanks in advance!
