create custom class

hi all,

I want to make a custom data class. Where do I best store that class
in my rails structure? Do I need to include that class somewhere ?

Thanks

If this is a class that doesn't have a database table, you can put it
into a file with the same name as the class but lowercase (and ending in
".rb") in the "lib" directory. So for an Item class, add:

lib/item.rb

When you refer to the class, this is one of the places Rails
automatically looks.

Usually that would go in RAILS_ROOT/lib. You can then 'require' it in your environment.rb.
