Hi, I'm new to ruby on rails and I have little problem. I need to make application that creates list of items on startup. So model shouldnt have database. 1. Is the best choice to use standard class as model, for example item.rb in models folder? 2. What's the best way to create collection of model on controller startup? Is it creating array of model classes in initialize() method of controller? 3. My app should have search functionality based on items name. Is the best way to simply search array in for loop and return searched items? Is there any better and simplier approach than this I described? Thanks in advance
