Standup 06/23/2009: Multi-table Inheritance?

Ask for Help

“Has anyone implemented mutli-table (class table) inheritance in Rails, as apposed to single table inheritance (STI)?”

  • There are some plugins that nobody has tried, such as inherits_from
  • What about a view to represent the super set of tables and rows?

“We’re looking for a dead-simple, drop-in JS rating or ‘starting’ plugin.”

Check out the start-rating jQuery plugin. Any other suggestions?
