Customizing Rails error messages for models and attributes

Rails has generic error messages you can define in your locale .yml files. You may override those application-wide error messages using model or attribute scope like this:

en: activerecord: errors: messages: invalid: is invalid # used for any invalid attribute in the application models: car: invalid: does not work # used for invalid car attributes attributes: driver: invalid: not allowed to drive # used if the car's driver attribute is invalid

Once an application no longer requires constant development, it needs periodic maintenance for stable and secure operation. makandra offers monthly maintenance contracts that let you focus on your business while we make sure the lights stay on.
