Piggy back plugin updated

Posted 16 Sep 2006

Timo Hentschel, one of my coworkers at the company for which I’m doing contract work at the moment (AutoScout24), has added a nifty little extension to my piggy_back plugin.

It’s now possible to piggy back from has_many :through associations, provided the association will return at most one record from the underlying SQL query.

This type of association currently needs to be used as a replacement for the non existent has_one :through.

There have been rumours that has_one :through will find it’s way into rails core. If it does, I’ll probably remove the has_many :through support from piggy back plugin again, or at least raise a deprecation warning.
