SR does allow you to update the whole page, selector or nothing. For the whole page morph it will re-run the controller action. Not sure how it would work with Calendar events but more info can be found here:

Howdy. You can have your static marketing pages in the same app if you like. The way I have done it is have routing constraints. IE

class MarketingSite
  def self.matches?(request)
    request.subdomain.blank? || request.subdomain == "www"

class App
  def self.matches?(request)
    request.subdomain.present? && request.subdomain == "app"

Rails.application.routes.draw do
  constraints(MarketingSite) do
    root "static#index"
    get "/pricing", to: "static#pricing"
    get "/contact", to: "static#contact"

  constraints(App) do

And then you will have a views/layouts/static.html.erb which will be used by the static controller like so:

class StaticController < ApplicationController
  layout "static"

Posted in Row-level Multitenancy with ActsAsTenant Discussion

You can let people sign up using devise but accept a nested attribute for company and get the company name on the signup form as well. Company has many users and user belongs to company. Another thing is having a join table so

Company: has_many company_users
CompanyUser: belongs_to company, belongs_to user
User: has_many :company_users, belongs_to company, through: company_user

Hey Peter! What you want to do is have a state/status column on your Book. This way the initial state is 'Available' and then when a check-out record is created that state/status on the book can be changed to "Checked-out". When someone is returning that book and you update the 'checked_in_at' datetime column you can update the status of the book back to Available.

This way you don't have to do weird queries but can just query for all books that are 'Available" or "Checked-out"

With AASM I was able to do something like this:

aasm column: :status do
    state :available, :initial => true
    state :checked_out

   event :checkout do
      transitions :from => :available, :to => :checked_out

    event :checkin do
      transitions from: :checked_out, to: :available


On book's you would just have an aasm column or a status column which is of string type.
