I had a bright idea for an improvement for the app I am currently working on. I have a Rails model that has only 2 rows in the database and the data is never changed, it has quite a lot of relationships and is used quite extensively. My idea was to remove the database out of the equasion and create a Model that would be entirely self dependent. Here I will show you my methods of maddness:

def MyModel

include ActiveModel::Validations

include ActiveModel::Conversion

extend ActiveModel::Naming

def self.attr_accessor(*vars)

@attributes ||= []

@attributes.concat( vars )

super

end

def self.attributes

@attributes

end

def initialize(attributes={})

attributes && attributes.each do |name, value|

send("#{name}=", value) if respond_to? name.to_sym

end

end

def persisted?

false

end

def self.inspect

"#<#{ self.to_s} #{ self.attributes.collect{ |e| ":#{ e }" }.join(', ') }>"

end

end
