Topic: How to silence ActiveRecord in favour of MongoDB
Hello every one,
I was playing around with MongoDB and love it and my favourite wrapper gem Mongroid. The only problem I am having is that Rails still insist on many levels that active record has some associative database even though I am not using it. Mongroid has a separate config file from database.yml and though everything works if rails doesn't find a connection to a database like mysql or sqllite it complains and crashes.
For a quick solution I just tell it to use sqllite and I doubt there is much of a performance issue involved in this. I would like to know how to completely override active record and tell rails to use mongroid instead and would love any help thank you.
