acts_as_taggable is dead, long live has_many_polymorphs

January 13, 2007 Link to post  Permalink

Evan Weaver has just posted about how to replace all the different acts_as_taggable implementations with his has_many_polymorphs plugin.

Since the current owners of the acts_as_taggable gem seem to have abandoned it, and DHH’s identically named acts_as_taggable plugin also seems dead, this is probably the best way forward if your writing new code or planning changes to old code in the near future.

I haven’t checked this out yet, but my tag cloud code should be able to work with has_many_polymorphs with little to no modification.
