[yast-devel] user form problem and other cleanups
  • From: Duncan Mac-Vicar Prett <dmacvicar@xxxxxxx>

The form now works:

form_for(:user, @user, :url => { :action => "update" }, :html => {
:method => :put } ) do |f| %>

Rails was right, the route is configured to do a put, and to get the
put, one needs to put it into the :html option.

That together with changing YaST::ServiceResource to actually use simple
class names solves the problem.
( now is no longer
YaST::ServiceResource::Proxies::OrgYaSTFoo but only
YaST::ServiceResource::Proxies::Foo ) and then we will add a feature to
request the proxy with a custom class name in case you need to handle
resources named equal.

I may had broke sshkeys.

Some things that can be improved (not necessarily for the milestone):

- When one uses form_for, rails generates for fields with
name="modelname[atrrname] instead of name="attrname".

so making
@user.attrname = params[:user][:attrname] for every attribute is not needed.

as params[:user] is already a Hash with all the values, you can init the
model with the hash values:

require 'active_resource'
class Resource < ActiveResource::Base = "http://localhost:8080";

r = => "foo", :b => "kfk")
=> #<Resource:0x7f3fa1058560 @prefix_options={},
@attributes={"a"=>"foo", "b"=>"kfk"}>

values = {:a => "foo", :b => "kfk"}
r =
=> #<Resource:0x7f3fa1029b98 @prefix_options={},
@attributes={"a"=>"foo", "b"=>"kfk"}>

It works, so why not simply @user =[:user]) and we save
tons of lines of code.
Now, we don't have a class User because we generate it dynamically using
YaST::ServiceResource, so[:user]) makes the trick.

- ssh key handling.

Right now in the web client the user ssh key is mapped to a custom
method exportSsh key. Everything is handled in the same controller using
ifs according to what form button was pressed and makes the code quite
complicated. I think we could discuss in next meeting how to make this
