Question

I have a User model created in devise:

class User < ApplicationRecord
  # Include default devise modules. Others available are:
  # :confirmable, :lockable, :timeoutable and :omniauthable
  devise :database_authenticatable, :registerable,
         :recoverable, :rememberable, :trackable, :validatable

  has_one :profile, dependent: :destroy
  after_create :build_profile

  acts_as_follower

end

Which has an associated profile with the user. And I'm using the acts_as_follower gem to give this model the ability to follow another model.

I want the User to follow a Profile, so i have my profile model set up like this:

class Profile < ApplicationRecord
  belongs_to :user

  has_attached_file :avatar, styles: { medium: "300x300>", thumb: "100x100>" }, default_url: "https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/564x/f7/61/b3/f761b3ae57801975e0a605e805626279.jpg"
  validates_attachment_content_type :avatar, content_type: /\Aimage\/.*\z/

  acts_as_followable

end

The Profile model should be followable according to the gem, which is how I have it set up.

I ran the migrations as required rails generate acts_as_follower

In my profile_controller iv set up the following methods:

  def follow
    @profile = Profile.find(params[:id])
    current_user.follow(@profile)
    redirect_to :back
  end

  def unfollow
    @profile = Profile.find(params[:id]) 
    current_user.stop_following(@profile)
    redirect_to :back
  end

And in my route.rb file i have the following:

  resources :profiles do
    member do
      get :follow
      get :unfollow
    end
  end

Now in my profiles show view iv set up the button as so:

  <% if !@profile.followed_by?(current_user) %>
    <%= link_to "Follow", follow_profile_path(@profile), class: "btn btn-success btn-outline btn-sm"%>
  <% end %>

According to my knowledge and documentation this should work, but for some reason it does not follow the user or create the association between the user and the profile to follow.

I figured it out, in my gemfile I installed from the master branch, so change your gemfile to this:

gem "acts_as_follower", github: "tcocca/acts_as_follower"
