How do you handle embedded schemas (the map fields in JSON or JSONB) with generators and forms?
I have a situation where I have one schema (Account) that will have some embedded schemas (MemberS, Contact).
I’m going with embedded schema because I’m not sure of how the underlying data will end up.
But I have two questions about embedded schemas:
- How to handle them using generators (particularly
I guess that ignoring the field and populating manually should be the easiest but then I would have to generate every bit of HTML…
- Should I use
Also I’ll probably go with a JS solution that will add more fields for the Members since I’ll have
embeds_many for this. But what will be the
name fields I should set manually?
I remember having some very hard time in Rails for (and I’m not even talking about casting datas) despite those kind of form management should be trivial (at least for a web application)…
Hopefully I think it will be easier with Phoenix and Ecto Changeset…
