I’m just announcing and looking for feedback for a quick little
plugin I wrote: acts_as_readonly (http://github.com/kevincolyar/
acts_as_readonly is an ActiveRecord plugin that makes a model
readonly, preventing its attributes from being set and calling methods
like save, create, and destroy on it.
This plugin is useful for working with risky, legacy or third party
database where data is only being viewed.
class MyModel < ActiveRecord::Base
$ ./script/plugin install email@example.com:kevincolyar/
