I’ve recently been working on a project that needed use of the spree product assembly, but the users needed to be able to choose a recipe and ingredients. I used a combination of jQuery, JSON cookies, and some modifications to the product assembly to address this issue.
I’m creating a basic pantry application which will be able to catalog current items in the user’s pantry. So, one of the pages needed will display different food items and the current quantities in the user’s pantry. A way to organize this data is to use a Bootstrap Panel to display the current totals and when the selected panel is clicked, individual data values will be displayed.
The data structure consists of Store, Producer, and Unit models, which all just consist of a name. Next, we have the Food model which has a name, upc, servings, serving_size, and references to a Producer and Unit. Finally, we have the Stock model which has a price, quantity, discount, bought, and references to Food, Store, and User (for the User I’m just using the basic Devise User model).
