View Full Version : Rails controllers - 1 for every model?

04-10-2007, 08:09 PM
I've been going through some RoR tuts and reading Agile Web Developer with Ruby on Rails (I think thats what the book is called) and I've created an admin controller BUT I want the admin controller to manage multiple models as my application isnt run on a single model. In the Depot application with the book I'm reading their admin controller only manages a single table/model. In other examples I've seen, they create a controller for every model.
Is it possible to have multiple scaffolds in a single controller? Or am I totally missing the point.

I am also fairly new to rails... But it doesn't matter...

If you were using 2 different models, i forgot your exact post but here's an example of using 2.

def method_name
@user = User.find(@params["id"])
@images = Images.find_all(@params["id"])

As far as scaffolding 2 models... Any particular reason you want to? Scaffolding is sort of a temporary guide.
