ActsAsFeatured

Allows ActiveRecord models to be specified as featured by updating a featured_at datetime (or timestamp) field on the model.

Also provides named scopes for featured and unfeatured finds.

Requires Rails > 2.1.0

Installation

Add a featured_at datetime field to any model that you want to be featured.

Example

# Add the column
./script/generate migration AddFeaturedAtToPost featured_at:datetime
rake db:migrate

class Post < ActiveRecord::Base
  acts_as_featured
end

Post.featured
# SELECT * FROM posts WHERE posts.featured_at IS NOT NULL

Post.unfeatured
# SELECT * FROM posts WHERE posts.featured_at IS NULL

@post.feature!
# UPDATE posts SET featured_at = '2008-07-08 15:58:34' WHERE id = 1

@post.unfeature!
# UPDATE posts SET featured_at = NULL WHERE id = 1

@post.featured?
# Return true if the post is featured, false if not
