module ActiveModel::Model

Included modules:

Active Model Basic Model

Allows implementing models similar to ActiveRecord::Base. Includes ActiveModel::API for the required interface for an object to interact with Action Pack and Action View, but can be extended with other functionalities.

A minimal implementation could be:

class Person
  include ActiveModel::Model
  attr_accessor :name, :age

person = Person.new(name: 'bob', age: '18')
person.name # => "bob"
person.age  # => "18"

If for some reason you need to run code on initialize, make sure you call super if you want the attributes hash initialization to happen.

class Person
  include ActiveModel::Model
  attr_accessor :id, :name, :omg

  def initialize(attributes={})
    @omg ||= true

person = Person.new(id: 1, name: 'bob')
person.omg # => true

For more detailed information on other functionalities available, please refer to the specific modules included in ActiveModel::Model (see below).
