Super comes with generators for generating admin routes and controllers.
bin/rails g super:resource product
That’ll update the routes file and generate a controller file like below:
class Admin::ProductsController < AdminController class Controls < AdminControls def model Product end end end
Let’s start the rails server and browse over to http://localhost:3000/admin/products and see what the defaults look like.
The index view:
The show view:
The edit view:
Let’s create the rest of the admin pages too.
bin/rails g super:resource customer bin/rails g super:resource subscription bin/rails g super:resource receipt
You may have noticed that http://localhost:3000/admin gives you a 404 error. You can create something like a
Admin::HomeController and customize it to your liking, but for now, let’s redirect it to a reasonable page. I’ll make it redirect to the customers page.
Rails.application.routes.draw do namespace :admin do resources :receipts resources :subscriptions resources :customers resources :products root to: redirect(path: "/admin/customers", status: 302) end # For details on the DSL available within this file, see https://guides.rubyonrails.org/routing.html end
While we’re here, let’s change the order of the resources. Super uses the order of the routes to build the navigation links. And lastly, I’m gonna remove the comment.
Rails.application.routes.draw do namespace :admin do resources :customers resources :subscriptions resources :receipts resources :products root to: redirect(path: "/admin/customers", status: 302) end end
