My application contains following controllers:
Following are the models:
- Topics has_many items
- Items has_many attachments
- Users has_many topics
- Cities has_many counties
- Counties has_many users, topics
A topic contains many items. When I try to display a topic, I need to
get its corresponding items, their attachments and display everything in
a single page. In addition I have some filters on who can
add/edit/delete topics/items. Previously I did it with ugly coding -
with all the code pressed in the Topics controller. Now I am trying to
make my application RESTful and stuck with many question marks.
How can I render all the topics, items, and attachments in a single
page. Previously I used lot of partials wherein main show page would
call _topics partial and it would then call _items partial etc…
Now with code being separated in different controllers I am not able to
use partials. Is there anyway I can do it? Also how can configure my
routes for this application. All I did was map.resources :topic,
:has_many => items, but I am not sure whether I doing it right way.
Any help appreciated.
