I would not trust this with production data. It's much much much too early for anything more than a pet project.
Maybe, maybe not. It's definitely new but it's not much more than some basic scaffold generators right now. Nothing too special. I wouldn't use it on a client project yet, but I'd absolutely use it on personal projects.
I'm using ActiveAdmin for most sites since it existed beforehand, but now I'm starting to use Administrate in production. Only real concerns with this over production use is that it hasn't existed for all that long to work out the basic bugs. Since it's pretty much scaffolds, you can pretty easily debug anything that would go wrong. The main downside right now is going to be a potentially quickly changing API that may be more than you would want to deal with maintenance wise.
Ah that's disappointing. I wonder what the issue was with the JS...As long as you've got an easy admin to work with, that's all that matters.
really like the UI and simplicity of this Gem but yeah i think its too early to adopt..I couldn't find a command to remove all the files it has generated..is there any?
Yeah, I don't know of _any_ generators that have an uninstall. Git works perfect for removing them though.
Yeah, I agree..was thinking of something like a 'destroy' command from rails..thanks for the video @excid3:disqus
Didnt find implementation for custom pages. Or there is nothing about this?
Hi Chris, Thanks very much for this overview. I'm trying to use this, except I'm running into a problem, which I think is related to have objects for which there is no controller.
I am currently getting this error:
NameError in Admin::Users#show
Showing /Users/mm/.rvm/gems/ruby-2.2.2/gems/administrate-0.1.3/app/views/fields/has_many/_show.html.erb where line #24 raised:
uninitialized constant Mailboxer::MessageDashboard
I think the problem might be that it can't make a space in the dashboard if there is no controller action. Do you have any ideas for how to solve this?
Thanks very much.
Also, if it helps others, if errors come up when you try to run the installer, try deleting the routes, running 'spring stop' in your terminal and re-running the installer.
To get your customized views to work move app/views/admin/applications to app/views/administrate/application. The generator does not copy files to the correct path.
