I made a gem that (hopefully) provides a simple way to reduce bloat in controllers

…while making testing easier.

The gem is ‘skinny_controllers’

It’s inspired by trailblazer, but sticks more to how rails is laid out.

To use the default functionality, for each of your actions, you can just

render json: model

or however you want to render the response. model is a memoized method
that looks up an operation and policy and applies whatever custom logic
you want to implement.

Checkout the readme for details.

I’m using this gem in a production sass project with Ember as my
frontend and ActiveModelSerializers for helping structure JSON, so
support for skinny_controllers isn’t going away ever.

Hope you like it :slight_smile:
