CRM Application Backed by Ruby on Rails

Cocoach is a business coaching and business management application for real-time collaboration, document creation and project management. The scope of this application is huge. Every business is given its own sandbox domain, and each department a subdomain below that. The application operates differently depending on the context of the user. With a department selected, the user is focussed on items only related to the current department, however, events must “bubble up” to the business level. more»

Active Hash

Rails models powered by static files  

ActiveHash is a simple base class that allows you to use a ruby hash as a readonly datasource for an ActiveRecord-like model.

ActiveHash assumes that every hash has an :id key, which is what you would probably store in a database. This allows you to seamlessly upgrade from ActiveHash objects to full ActiveRecord objects without having to change any code in your app, or any foreign keys in your database.

It also allows you to use #has_many and #belongs_to (via belongs_to_active_hash) in your AR objects.

ActiveHash can also be useful to create simple test classes that run without a database - ideal for testing plugins or gems that rely on simple AR behavior, but don’t want to deal with databases or migrations for the spec suite.
