Administration

Hi everyone, I was wondering about an admin section for websites,
would I be better off to separate the admin controllers from the
public exposed controllers? At the moment I do this via a namespace,
but to me it seems more like a duplication...

Is this part of being RESTful?

Can you please tell me how you made the admin sections in your web
apps?

Thanks

ChaosKnight,

Generally, separate admin controllers are not my preference and don’t seem to be a clean restful representation of the problem. I prefer having one set of controllers for the entities in the system with some actions only allowed to admins. Also, some actions will work differently for admin users. Also, some information or functionality in the views will only be available to admins. Sometimes admins need views that show information from a broad set of entities in the system. In this case, I would create an admin controller to handle those views.
