An acts_as_sortable replacement built for Rails 3

Howdy all,

I just wanted to point out a new positioning library we open-sourced
at Harvest:

  http://hrv.st/f03yfi

And github:

  https://github.com/harvesthq/ranked-model

A couple reasons this is a nice option for positioning:

  * ARel! From the ground up this library uses ARel so sorts can be
chained like any order() statement.
  * Multiple rankers for a single model.
  * Group sorted items by a common column or any scope.
  * Fewer database writes with a new position storage strategy.
  * Rspec! This lib is well tested.

I think it's a great solution for a common problem Rails folk often
need to address. Any feedback or questions are welcome!

Thanks all,

-Matthew

Nice, thanks for sharing. I will give it a try in a project I am currently planning :slight_smile:
