C3 Rails Diagramming

c3mediagroupc3mediagroup Pro shared this on Feb 9, 2008

Some helpful stencils for designing your database and models. Sort of an Entity Relationship Diagram (ERD) with some added stuff that helps me think through what's going to go on when I get to coding. Don't feel bad if (like me) you are more of a Designer/Developer and just use the plain arrow to connect things. The ERD stuff can make your head explode if you go too deep.

To install, download and double-click stencil. Questions? Read more about installing stencils.

In case you're new to these kinds of things, you can add more name/type rows to the tables by clicking in a row and hitting Ctl-Enter (or menu Edit -> Tables -> Insert Row). That one was not so obvious to me initially either.

Been playing with this stencil for a while and still unable to add a new column name/type. Don't have the Edit/table/insert option. Using a mac.

You need Omnigraffle Pro to work with tables

Does this even exist anymore? The site doesn't respond when I try to download it. Maybe their site is just temporarily unavailable. Anyone suggest another database modeler for OmniGraffle?

I just got it, so it must be back.

It doesn't appear that this is Rails specific but can be used for database design work in general

@Jeffrey: For the most part it's not. I did build it for our Rails work with the 'has_...' association references, which are somewhat Rails specific though.

After edit table, shadow is gone. What's happen?

this is a great looking stencil, any way to paste data, i.e. multiple rows, into it? Going crazy trying.
