I'm a Rails newbie, so please bear with me. I want to use the URL as the
ID for a RESTful resource, but using the path after the controller. The
remaining portion of the URL would be the ID, rather than an integer.
So rather than just:
I want to use:
where foo, foo/bar and foo/bar/baz are all Widgets, not nested resources.
In the controller I'd like to do something like
@widget = Widget.find(params[:path])
where path is a string column defined as a primary key (or unique)
containing strings like 'foo', 'foo/bar' and 'foo/bar/baz'
Is this possible?
