I’m writing my first Rails app and I’m stuck at the database level. I have 2 models:
Mission. They are connected very unremarkably like so:
User has_many :missions, dependent: :destroy Mission belongs_to :user
I would like other users to be able to interact with missions by either: liking them and/or marking them as completed
This is all very vanilla stuff here, but I’m struggling with adding this additional layer of interaction into the models.
I started by creating a table
Connection with attributes
I added the following:
User has_many :connections, dependent: :destroy Connection belongs_to :user Connection belongs_to :mission
Do I need a has_many :through relationship? I’m trying to preserve the ownership between a User and a Mission ( belongs_to association ). I’m reading about polymorphic associations and am wondering if they are applicable? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
