Super v0.0.12 (and 11 and 10 and 9 and 8)

Over the past few months, I’ve added a bunch of features to Super that make it much more pleasant to use and to customize.


  • Super v0.0.12 lets you work with computed fields. You can display fields that aren’t tied to the database, or aren’t tied to any method on the model. (But you can’t filter or sort computed fields since that’s just done inside the database.)
  • Super v0.0.11 added sorting. You can easily sort by multiple columns.
  • Super v0.0.10 added the super_form_for view helper. It’s useful for whenever you need a very custom form.
  • Super v0.0.9 added support for ActionText. And the Webpacker 6 beta.
  • Super v0.0.8 added a bunch of simple “guessers”. They can guess which columns are displayable, editable, filterable, and sortable.

I also made a new site for docs where I added a tutorial and some how-to guides. I’ll be improving it in the upcoming days, and I’ll also focus on writing some blog posts that’ll go over some of the design decisions I made.
