How Rails’ Dynamic Finders Work

By Peter Cooper / August 14, 2006


Josh Susser explains exactly how Rails' dynamic finders work (things like User.find_by_name and User.find_all_by_city). It's a good introduction to some of the simpler abstractions taking place under the hood in Rails, and is an ideal guide if you're thinking of creating similar abstractions of your own.

    Those dynamic finders look great, i'll implement them soon i think. Maybe its time to buy a proper Rails Book :-)
