With the release of version 1.2.1 of Inherited Resources, compatibility with Mongoid was broken. To optimize the setting of a collection in a controller, Inherited Resources calls the
scoped method at the end of the collection association chain over calling
all. The change to use
scoped results in a collection being lazily queried. The reason why Mongoid breaks is because it does not have a
scoped method, thus using Inherited Resources in any Mongoid project causes collection controller actions to break.
Inherited Resources has rectified the issue in their master branch on GitHub by checking to see if the collection responds to
scoped. If you cannot wait for the next release of Inherited Resources, add the following code to one of your Rails initializers to get it working with Mongoid again:
# app/config/initializers/inherited_resources.rb module InheritedResources class Base def collection get_collection_ivar || begin c = end_of_association_chain set_collection_ivar(c.respond_to?(:scoped) ? c.scoped : c.all) end end end end
