Any suggested best practice for creating a Rails UI to edit many child objects on one page?
A simple example would be putting in monthly stock returns for a portfolio of securities. The UI will allow editing the “return” values of stocks in the portfolio, and add another month’s worth of values easily. This would be tedious one record at a time.
There’s a related railscast on this topic: http://railscasts.com/episodes/165-edit-multiple-revised
I’ve seen suggestions not to use
accepts_nested_attributes_for and to possibly use form objects for this sort of task.
I’m wondering if I’ll simple end up with a lot of coffeescript & jQuery to make come out nicely.
Or if it’s useful to try to work EmberJs into an existing Rails app.
While I’ve used AngularJs a bit, I’d rather focus on EmberJs, if I was going to learn one.
(And if you search “rails 4 emberjs”, my tutorial is first on Google!)
Thanks for suggestions.
