# Installation

# Requirements

  • Ruby on Rails > 6.0
  • Ruby 2.6

# Installing Avo

  1. Add gem 'avo' to your Gemfile
  2. Run bundle install.
  3. Run bin/rails generate avo:install to generate the initializer and add Avo to the routes.rb file.
  4. Generate an Avo Resource

# Authorization

You probably would not want to allow anyone access to Avo. If you're using devise (opens new window) in your app, use this block to filter out requests to it in your routes.rb file.

authenticate :user do
  mount Avo::Engine => '/avo'
end

You may also add custom user validation such as user.admin? to only permit a subset of users to your Avo instance.

authenticate :user, -> user { user.admin? } do
  mount Avo::Engine => '/avo'
end

# authorize_with method

Alternatively you can user the authorize_with config attribute. It takes a block and evaluates it in Avo's ApplicationController as a before_action.

Avo.configure do |config|
  config.authenticate_with do
    authenticate_admin_user
  end
end

# Customize the current_user method

If you're not using devise (opens new window) for authentication you may customize the current_user method to something else. The current_user_method key takes a block parameter (shorthand or full block).

Avo.configure do |config|
  config.current_user_method(&:current_admin)
end

Using the block notation:

Avo.configure do |config|
  config.current_user_method do
    current_admin
  end
end

# Custom the

# Adding the license key

After you purchase an Avo license add it to your config/initializers/avo.rb file along with changing the license type from community to pro.


 
 


Avo.configure do |config|
  config.license = 'pro'
  config.license_key = '************************' # or use ENV['AVO_LICENSE_KEY']
end
