  if attributes.is_a?(::Array)
    attributes.map { |attrs| create(attrs, type, &block) }

end

- (Document) create!(attributes = nil, options = {}, type = nil) - (Document) create!(attributes = nil, type = nil)

- (Document) find_or_create_by(attributes = nil, type = nil) - (Document) find_or_create_by(attributes = nil, type = nil)

Find the first document given the conditions, or creates a new document with the conditions that were supplied.

Examples:

Find or create.

person.posts.find_or_create_by(:title => "Testing")

  find_or(:create, attrs, type, &block)
end

- (Document) find_or_initialize_by(attributes = {}, type = nil) - (Document) find_or_initialize_by(attributes = {}, type = nil)

Find the first Document given the conditions, or instantiates a new document with the conditions that were supplied

Examples:

- (false) nil?

This proxy can never be nil.

Examples:

Is the proxy nil?

relation.nil?

def nil?

end

- (true, false) respond_to?(name, include_private = false)

Since method_missing is overridden we should override this as well.

Examples:

Does the proxy respond to the method?

relation.respond_to?(:name)

Since:

  • 2.0.0

def respond_to?(name, include_private = false)
  [].respond_to?(name, include_private) ||
    klass.respond_to?(name, include_private) || super
end

def scoped
  criteria
end

- (Hash) serializable_hash(options = {})

Gets the document as a serializable hash, used by ActiveModel's JSON and XML serializers. This override is just to be able to pass the :include and :except options to get associations in the hash.

Examples:

Get the serializable hash.

relation.serializable_hash

Options Hash (options):

  • :include (Symbol)

    What relations to include

  • :only (Symbol)

    Limit the fields to only these.

  • :except (Symbol)

    Dont include these fields.

  • 2.0.0.rc.6
