Resouces used in routing can be used in a limited way with ʻonly`
resources :account_activations, only: [:edit]
The named routes in Table 11.2 state that _url should be used instead of _path. Why? Think about it. Tip: We will now use the named route in emails.
You need to have a full path because you can only go with a path (URL) that can be accessed from outside the server.
The root relative path returned by
_path or the relative path cannot be used.
Added 3 attributes to User model
$ rails generate migration add_activation_to_users \ > activation_digest:string activated:boolean activated_at:datetime
gives false` by default
class AddActivationToUsers < ActiveRecord::Migration[6.0] def change add_column :users, :activation_digest, :string add_column :users, :activated, :boolean, default: false #Initial value false add_column :users, :activated_at, :datetime end end
Call the method that assigns the ʻactivation_token
and ʻactivation_digest attributes in advance with
def create_activation_digest self.activation_token = User.new_token self.activation_digest = User.digest(activation_token) end
is an attribute that is not in the model Requires ʻattr_accessor
attr_accessor :remember_token, :activation_token #Can be written in one line
Enable sample user and fixture
