Episode #55

March 2, 2010

Internationalization, Oracle and Tomcat, and QR Codes are covered on today's episode of Ruby5. Also, we cover Frank, Tilt, acts_as_archive, and the SinatraFakeWebServ...


acts_as_archive Instead of Soft Delete

If you're building (or working with) an application that doesn't actually delete your models, you may be interested in acts_as_archive. It's an alternative to creating manual, default scopes or the acts_as_paranoid plugin. It actually moves the deleted objects into a separate table, keeping your active objects table clean, which makes your finders and scopes more simple and even in some cases increases the efficiency of your data store. It also provides a simple way to restore data back into active duty.
