I have a table called ‘fruit_operations’ with this example content:
bananas 6 buy tony
bananas 3 sell tony
tomatoes 5 buy tony
bananas 1 sell john
tomatoes 5 sell tony
bananas 2 buy tony
Now I want a @user method that returns for Tony 5 bananas (6-3+2), that
could be accesed like @user.fruit_list for example.
I have think that I can implement this with another model called
FruitList and another table fruit-list that is updated each time we have
a fruit_operation but I would like to have something like a “virtual
table” that only do the calculation then @user.fruit_list is invoked
with the information found in fruit_operations.
How do you recommend implementing this?
In fact this is for a webapp with stocks, operations and the portfolio
