Fragment caching not expiring the correct fragment cache


#1

Hi,

I have a Product model. My app creates a fragment cache for
mysite.com/products, which triggers the index action (my app is
RESTful). Only admins can edit products, therefore, when adding a new
product, the mysite.com/products should expire.

But I have a problem: my products administration controller is in
admin/products_controller.rb, and therefore stupid Rails expires
admin/products fragment which is not correct.

Here is part of my code:

  1. In the view:

    <%- cache(:controller => ‘products’, :action => ‘index’) do -%>
    <%- for product in @products -%>

  2. In the admin/products_controller.rb:

    cache_sweeper :product_sweeper, :only => [:create, :update, :destroy]

  3. And my sweeper:

    class ProductSweeper < ActionController::Caching::Sweeper
    observe Product

def after_save(product)
expire_cache(product)
end

def after_destroy(product)
expire_cache(product)
end

def expire_cache(product)
expire_fragment(:controller => ‘products’, :action => ‘index’)
end
end

How to tell Rails to not be clever, and simply force him to expire
products fragment instead of admin/products?

Due to completely outdated information I have been reading on the
internet, one should replace:

:controller => ‘products’, :action => ‘index’

by

products_url

Now caching and expiring works correctly.
