How can I add a print method for Audited gem in Rails?

I’m using the gem Audited in my Rails app. I want to create a way to
print
out the Audit record so I can have a feed of what has been changed by a
User, or what has changed on an object. Currently, I have setup a method
called print_audit on each object that I’m using with Audited. But this
seems incredibly wrong. I would like to override the to_s method on the
Audit model… but I’m unsure what the correct way of doing that would
be… is the approach incorrect and if not how would I go about doing
this?

Trust your instincts :slight_smile:

I’d consider the Single Responsibility Principal and write something
entirely separate, e.g. an AuditReport class and whatever supporting
classes/modules that requires. (TDDing will tell you what they are.)

FWIW,

Thanks for the reply. I had not heard of “SRP” and looked it up. This
is
the method I think I’m going to use as it seems simple and works out
quite
well I believe. If anyone knows of a better way I’m all ears! Thanks
again
Hassan!

Added file: config/initializers/audited_additional_methods.rb

module Audited
module Adapters
module ActiveRecord
class Audit < ::ActiveRecord::Base
def to_s
“Added my new to_s logic here”
end
end
end
endend
