DisplayTag for Rails?



I had read somewhere that there would be an effort to port the 

DisplayTag to Ruby. I haven’t seen anything else after this news flash
Does anyone know what’s the status on that effort ?

Is there anything else helperwise that fully understand sort and 

filter on a
table ?

I am trying to create some tables views that support for sort and 

filter. I
did see the sort filter but it seems pretty flat and does not seems to
relationship all that great. For example how would on go about sorting
on a 1-1
relationship ?

Say I have Table A and Table B where A defines b_id as a foreign key. I
want my sort column to be defined as b_id.name for instance.

Did I miss something ?
