To create a model with NoBrainer, simply include the
NoBrainer::Document mixin in your class as such:
class User include NoBrainer::Document end
There is no migrations needed to use the model since NoBrainer creates the required tables for you by default.
The default table name is
class.name.tableize.gsub('/', '__'). You may change the table name as described in the Multi Tenancy section.
To use polymorphic models with single table inheritance, simply inherit your classes. Example:
class Admin < User end
NoBrainer uses a
_type attribute in the subclass documents to be able to query and instantiate the proper classes.
Note that when using Rails, you might have to use
require_dependency to ensure that all subclasses are loaded. See more in the Rails guide, Autoloading and STI.
Sometimes it’s useful to go through all the models to do something fancy. The list of models can be retrieved with
NoBrainer::Document.all. When using polymorphism, note that subclasses are not returned, only root classes.
