documentation of callback/validations

Reported by GMaples | February 4th, 2009 @ 01:25 AM

I love the plugin, thanks.
I am trying to add administrative banning to the authorization. I'd think the code should be something like

before_create :banned?

in session model, right? It would be amazingly helpful to new people like myself to have some basic documentation, or even a good hint beyond read-the-rdoc to get us going.

Thanks in advance

    Hi, I spent a lot of time on the documentation and the README is pretty basic, delving into the RDOC is where it gets a little more detailed. If you wouldn't mind telling me what confused you in the documentation so I can update it, that would be great.

    Anyways, I tried to mimic the AR style as best as I could. You could do a before_validation:

    before_validation :validate_banned

    private def validate_banned errors.add_to_base("You have been banned") if record && record.banned? end

    This goes in your session model. You could also create a validate method and put everything in there. Hope this helps.

    Update from the repo, I just added a validate callback so it feels more like AR. Instead of a before_validation you can just call validate.
