Store common settings in one file?

Hi,

I’m looking for a way to store common settings, such as the
application_name or email address from value in a file.

I then want to be able to call these settings in my controllers and
models?

Is there any easy way of doing this? and where would you recommend I
save the file ?

Thanks
scott

Put the file in the lib directory and then just require it where you
need it. You could also make it a Module which may be loaded for you
and then you can just include it.

lib/application-info.rb

module ApplicationInfo
attr_reader :application_name, :application_email
@application_name = “My Cool App”
@application_email = “[email protected]
end

class SomethingController < AC::Base
include ApplicationInfo

# now your actions and views have access to
# @application_name and @application_email

end

thanks carl,

Will give it a go

Hi Scott,

I would go for something much simpler, in environnment.rb:
CONFIG = {
:email => ‘[email protected]’,
}

Then, calling from everywhere in the app: CONFIG[:email]

I just stick my common settings into environment.rb, such as:

SUPPORT_EMAIL = “[email protected]

then I can use “mail_to(SUPPORT_EMAIL)” inside my app

There are numerous plugins for this. Naively I wrote this code that I
put in
/lib. You can get to it from anywhere and it provides a straightforward
array-like interface. E.g.,

Options[:email_from] = ‘[email protected]
Options[:smtp_server] = ‘smtp.mydomain.com

Provide a container for global option storage

Both getter/setter and [] access methods are

provided.

class Options
@@option_hash = {}

def self.set(option_name, value)
option_name = option_name.to_s
@@option_hash[option_name] = value
end

def self.get(option_name)
option_name = option_name.to_s
@@option_hash[option_name]
end

def self.[]=(option_name, value)
option_name = option_name.to_s
self.set(option_name, value)
end

def self.
option_name = option_name.to_s
self.get(option_name)
end

def self.has_key?(key)
key = key.to_s
@@option_hash.has_key?(key)
end

def self.key?(key)
self.has_key?(key)
end
end
