I’m new to Rails and am learning by trying to write a cookbook
application. My question is about the best way to implement adding
multiple steps to a recipe.
Imagine I have a recipe that has a title, author, description and a
number of steps/instructions. Instead of entering all the steps in a
single text box, I’d like to have the user enter each step
individually so that I can later list all steps on one page or skip
through them one per page, for example.
I’m assuming that the way to do this is to have a separate table that
holds the steps for each recipe, similar to the posts/comments
relationship in all the blog examples. However, is there a way of
implementing this such that a user could add all the recipe details
and steps on one page rather than entering the details first and each
step on subsequent table saves?
Does that make any sense? Maybe it’s a silly way of trying to
implement a recipe book in the first place? Thoughts?
