Yaml problem


#1

hi,
I have a has_many association between my sidebar and its blocks.

class Sidebar
has_many :blocks

class Block
belongs_to :sidebar

I select them by using i.e. @sidebar = Sidebar.find(1,:include=>:blocks)
and
this gives me my sidebar and its blocks in one query.

Then I save this @sidebar variable into a YAML file for fast access and
deployment. I checked the YAML file by eye and it seems ok. Then I
reload
the YAML into my application (in console) and sidebar.blocks is there…
but
whenever I try to access sidebar.blocks it queries the database. What
can be
wrong in this setup? The blocks is loaded from yaml file (console shows
it)
but whenever I try to access it queries the database.

Thanks in advance

can it be a bug of to_yaml? here is an excerpt from yaml file. blocks is
not
a part of attributes. is it correct?

— !ruby/object:Sidebar
attributes:
name: main_sidebar
default: “1”
id: “1”
blocks:

  • !ruby/object:Block
    attributes:
    name: static
    current_config: >2-
    — !ruby/hash:HashWithIndifferentAccess

Onur-

What are you trying to do exactly? You want to save an AR object as

yaml so you can reload it later without hitting the database? Is that
it? If so then I recommend reloading the yaml into a different
variable that is not an actual AR object. It seems that you are
trying to short circuit AR by loading yaml instead of hitting the db?
I don’t think this will work correctly the way you are trying to do
it. So just try loading the yaml into anonther var.
