Story def list (shovell)

Hey, what gives?

I tried to use searchlogic gem to order data so I created “list” method in stories_controller.rb

def bin
	#@stories=Story.find:all, :order=>'id DESC', :conditions=>'votes_count <5'
	fetch_stories 'votes_count <5'
	render :action=>'index'
def list


<h2><%= story_list_heading %></h2>
<%= order @stories, :by => :name %>
<%= render :partial=>'story_list', :collection=>@stories %>

_story_list.html.erb (partial)

<% div_for(story) do %>
		<span class="storyIdCol"><%= %></span>,
		<span class="storyCol"><%= link_to, story %></span>,
		<span class="storyLinkCol"><%= %></span>,
		<span class="storyUserCol"><%= story.user.login %></span>,
		<span class="storyVotesCol">%= story.votes_count %></span>,
		<span class="storyEditCol"><%= link_to 'Edit', edit_story_path(story) %></span>
<% end %>

But rails gives an error (http://localhost:3000/stories/list)
ActiveRecord::RecordNotFound in StoriesController#show

Couldn’t find Story with ID=list

Shorthand value “list_stories_path” isn’t available. :frowning:

Can you show me the code in your config/routes.rb file and the full stories controller?


ActionController::Routing::Routes.draw do |map|
  # You can have the root of your site routed with map.root -- just remember to delete public/index.html.
  # map.root :controller => "welcome"
  map.root :controller => "stories"

  # See how all your routes lay out with "rake routes"

  # Install the default routes as the lowest priority.
  map.resources :stories, :has_many=>:votes, :collection=>{:bin=>:get} #because of this we can use story_path (a helper), book page 235; page 245; custom routes book page 343
  map.resource :session #plural vs singular book page 287
  map.resources :users #book page 359
  map.resources :tags #book page 395
  map.connect ':controller/:action/:id'
  map.connect ':controller/:action/:id.:format'


class StoriesController < ApplicationController
	before_filter :login_required, :only=>[:new, :create] #book page 307
  def index
	#@stories=Story.find :all, :order=>'id DESC', :conditions=>'votes_count >=5'#this line rephrased, book page 341
	fetch_stories 'votes_count >=5'
  def new
  def create #this is executed when form is submitted in new.html.erb, because form is for @sotry variable[:story])#first line of code requires change, book page 309 params[:story] #new first line, book page 309
		flash[:notice]='Story submission succeeded'
		redirect_to stories_path #195 page in the book
		render :action=>'new'
	def edit
	def update
		if @story.update_attributes(params[:story])
			redirect_to :action=>'show', :id=>@story
			render :action=>'edit'
	def destroy
		redirect_to stories_path
	  def show #the form submission is routed (rake routes) to VotesController create method
	def bin
		#@stories=Story.find:all, :order=>'id DESC', :conditions=>'votes_count <5'
		fetch_stories 'votes_count <5'
		render :action=>'index'
	def list
	#If we were to make fetch_stories a publicly accessible method, it would be exposed via the URL http://localhost:3000/stories/fetch_stories, which is certainly not what we want! Book page 341
	def fetch_stories(conditions)
		#benchmarking book page 448
		self.class.benchmark('Fetching stories') do
			@stories=Story.find:all, :order=>'id DESC', :conditions=>conditions


In order to use a “non RESTful” route you need use :collection on your route.

This is what you have currently…

map.resources :stories, :has_many=>:votes, :collection=>{:bin=>:get}

This is what you would need for it to work…

map.resources :stories, :has_many=>:votes, :collection=>{:bin=>:get, :list => :get}

Can someone help me out?

I would like to use searchlogic but I just don’t understand how.
The description just says “Now just set it as a dependency in your project and you are ready to go.” How do I do that?

I have it installed

C:\\InstantRails\\rails_apps\\shovell>gem install searchlogic
Successfully installed searchlogic-2.4.19
1 gem installed
Installing ri documentation for searchlogic-2.4.19...
Installing RDoc documentation for searchlogic-2.4.19...


When I use it inside controller I get an error that “search” is not recognized

def list

In your environment.rb file you need to add the following line:

config.gem "searchlogic"

It needs to be placed after this line: do |config|

Can’t start server if environment.rb includes “searchlogic”
