Ruby on Rails Thursday, April 20, 2017

I have to say that Rails is great. 5.1 introduces a wonderful feature for my need: direct

Now in config/routes.rb I can write:

# Content model includes FriendlyId, so content_path(Content.first) calls record.to_param using the slug
resources :contents

direct 'edit_admin_content' do |record, options|
  # Here I specify to use the record id, so the resource url will fit better with admin section purposes
  options.merge controller: '/admin/contents', action: :edit, id:

Same for actions :show, :update and :destroy. Problem solved!

I don't think it is an hack what you are doing.

To actually have routes receiving different types of ids you probably needed to change how those helpers are generated by rails.
That means you might have to monkey patch rails.

The alternative rails is giving you to be able to do this is by doing this: admin_content_path(id:

So it allows you to pass to override the id passed as argument.

I am sorry but I dont think there is a way around this.
