Genderize is a simple Rails gem for adding gender helper methods to Rails models.
# Setting the gender is simple - just set the attribute value to "m" or "f" @user = User.new(gender: "f") # This gives us a few helper methods to add gender specific text to our views @user.gender.male? # => false @user.gender.name # => "female" @user.gender.to_s # => "f" @user.gender.abbr # => "f" # gender pronouns # As the subject of a sentence @user.gender.subject # => 'she' # As the object of a sentence @user.gender.object # => 'her' # Showing possession @user.gender.possessive # => 'her' # Writing a casual form of the gender @user.gender.casual # => "chick"
Add this to your Gemfile:
bundle install to install the gem.
$ rails g genderize:install
... to install the genderize.en.yml file in your locales directory
Finally, to genderize a model attribute:
class User < ActiveRecord::Base genderize # ... or, if your db column isn't named `gender` genderize(:user_gender) end
