Topic: Best Practices For "Look Up Tables"
Looking to know if anyone has a best practice or "Rails Convention" for creating and managing "lookup" tables in rails. For example I have a user form. Within this "user" form there will be a drop down that is dynamic and will give the user an option to select a "Role".
So it would be nice if I knew the following.
a) Could I organize my 'model folder' in rails like this. Essentially create sub_folders in the model folder? This way when I look at my "models" folder I know what files are lookups.
lookup (this would be a folder)
b) Is there any RAILS convention to follow for using 'lookup' tables or a best practices especially when dealing with column_ids ? I would think there might be because it seems something that's done a lot.
