Mobile app JSON calls to controller

Hi,

I’ve controller methods which my mobile app calls to retrieve JSON.

I’m curious what is the best practice in naming mobile methods? Do I put
all the mobile calls into a new controller? Right now I’m only prependng
‘mobile_’ in front of the methods like session/mobile_create.

Right now the mobile functions are quite different from the Web ones. So
a
sessions/create VS sessions/mobile_create is different and so
mobile_create
news to exist.

I’m not sure I understand exactly what you’re doing, but I’m assuming
when
you refer to a mobile app you mean a rails app running on a mobile
device
(as opposed to an app developed in Cocoa or Android that is accessing
your
API). In that case, I would recommend Rails 4.1 as they have developed
a
standard that is a lot easier to use. Look at the section “ActionPack
Variants” at the following link:

Thanks for the link Mike. Actually I my mobile app is using PhoneGap. So
it
does JSON calls to my User controller.

Been looking for a better way to organise the methods. Right now in
addition to Create, I also have Mobile_create in the User controller
because Mobile_create is slightly different from Create.
