module ActiveModel::Naming

Active Model Naming

Creates a model_name method on your object.

To implement, just extend ActiveModel::Naming in your object:

class BookCover
  extend ActiveModel::Naming
end

BookCover.model_name.name   # => "BookCover"
BookCover.model_name.human  # => "Book cover"

BookCover.model_name.i18n_key              # => :book_cover
BookModule::BookCover.model_name.i18n_key  # => :"book_module/book_cover"

Providing the functionality that ActiveModel::Naming provides in your object is required to pass the Active Model Lint test. So either extending the provided method below, or rolling your own is required.

Public Class Methods

param_key(record_or_class) Show source
# File activemodel/lib/active_model/naming.rb, line 305
def self.param_key(record_or_class)
  model_name_from_record_or_class(record_or_class).param_key
end

Returns string to use for params names. It differs for namespaced models regarding whether it's inside isolated engine.

# For isolated engine:
ActiveModel::Naming.param_key(Blog::Post) # => "post"

# For shared engine:
ActiveModel::Naming.param_key(Blog::Post) # => "blog_post"
plural(record_or_class) Show source
# File activemodel/lib/active_model/naming.rb, line 250
def self.plural(record_or_class)
  model_name_from_record_or_class(record_or_class).plural
end

Returns the plural class name of a record or class.

ActiveModel::Naming.plural(post)             # => "posts"
ActiveModel::Naming.plural(Highrise::Person) # => "highrise_people"
route_key(record_or_class) Show source
# File activemodel/lib/active_model/naming.rb, line 293
def self.route_key(record_or_class)
  model_name_from_record_or_class(record_or_class).route_key
end

Returns string to use while generating route names. It differs for namespaced models regarding whether it's inside isolated engine.

# For isolated engine:
ActiveModel::Naming.route_key(Blog::Post) # => "posts"

# For shared engine:
ActiveModel::Naming.route_key(Blog::Post) # => "blog_posts"

The route key also considers if the noun is uncountable and, in such cases, automatically appends _index.

singular(record_or_class) Show source
# File activemodel/lib/active_model/naming.rb, line 258
def self.singular(record_or_class)
  model_name_from_record_or_class(record_or_class).singular
end

Returns the singular class name of a record or class.

ActiveModel::Naming.singular(post)             # => "post"
ActiveModel::Naming.singular(Highrise::Person) # => "highrise_person"
singular_route_key(record_or_class) Show source
# File activemodel/lib/active_model/naming.rb, line 278
def self.singular_route_key(record_or_class)
  model_name_from_record_or_class(record_or_class).singular_route_key
end

Returns string to use while generating route names. It differs for namespaced models regarding whether it's inside isolated engine.

# For isolated engine:
ActiveModel::Naming.singular_route_key(Blog::Post) # => "post"

# For shared engine:
ActiveModel::Naming.singular_route_key(Blog::Post) # => "blog_post"
uncountable?(record_or_class) Show source
# File activemodel/lib/active_model/naming.rb, line 266
def self.uncountable?(record_or_class)
  plural(record_or_class) == singular(record_or_class)
end

Identifies whether the class name of a record or class is uncountable.

ActiveModel::Naming.uncountable?(Sheep) # => true
ActiveModel::Naming.uncountable?(Post)  # => false

Public Instance Methods

model_name() Show source
# File activemodel/lib/active_model/naming.rb, line 237
def model_name
  @_model_name ||= begin
    namespace = parents.detect do |n|
      n.respond_to?(:use_relative_model_naming?) && n.use_relative_model_naming?
    end
    ActiveModel::Name.new(self, namespace)
  end
end

Returns an ActiveModel::Name object for module. It can be used to retrieve all kinds of naming-related information (See ActiveModel::Name for more information).

class Person
  extend ActiveModel::Naming
end

Person.model_name.name     # => "Person"
Person.model_name.class    # => ActiveModel::Name
