Scaffolding for pre-existing database table in 2.0.1

Although old, ActiveScaffold is still an excellent, efficient,
unobtrusive, scalable, and highly effective solution to build out lots
of quick list views (complete with searching, sorting, and pagination)
and CRUD actions.

The front-end isn’t very aesthetic, but with a little CSS love that can
be easily fixed. Personally I use ActiveScaffold for back-end
(admin-view) pages, and then write my own controllers for front-end
(user-facing) functionality.

Here’s a list of other alternatives to ActveScaffold for you to consider
as well:

I generally do not use the rails built-in scaffolding generators. They
are from the early days of rails and while they may have some
usefulness, they do not save me time in the long run.

One table that contains over 100 column fields doesn’t sound like a good
database design – maybe you should step back and think of a way to
create a more management data model.

ActiveScaffold lets you write very little code and get a very usable
out-of-the-box list & CRUD views for admin-facing pages. Like I said, I
would not use it for front-facing part of the site.

I have found it to be well documented, although trying to do certain
more complex things can get tricky.
