Rails wizard page support


#1

Hello,

does anyone know if there is a “best practice” how to implement wizard
pages in
RoR? I want to have multiple pages for entity editing and creation. Is
there
any rails plugin available? I think it would be nice to have a howto in
the
rails wiki or to have built-in wizard support in RoR. What do you think?
Any
suggestions how to implement this elegant?

e.g. I have 5 pages to create/edit one entity in my RoR app. I do not
want to have only one page because I think it is better to give the user
several smaller pages (step 1 of 5, step 2 of 5, …).
Now my question was if there is any “best practices” approach for such a
behaviour (or a howto). Some other frameworks support this with built-in
functionality (e.g. Spring, MonoRails, …) - perhaps this can be
implemented in RoR too - to give the RoR user a comfortable
functionality.

Google for the acts_as_state_machine plugin and have a look at it.
