How to control the length of Controller function in RoR

+2 votes

What you used to do when your controller function gets lengthy sometimes ? A way I found is just split the function. What is the real and Rails way to keep my code cleaner and maintainable.

Probably some of the logic should be removed from the controller and put into methods in the model(s). So for example look at the code and anywhere you have a few lines that are to do with extracting data from the model and manipulating it in some way then consider writing a model method that implements that function.

You can also extract bits of code into private methods of the controller, but concentrate first on moving stuff into the models.

Finally, if there is a lot of code interpreting data encoded in the url then maybe the routes could be improved.

I'm not looking for solution, but steps you would take to figure it out. I don't have experience with APIs and I figured that catching youtube data points and storing them in the database would be a great start?

Here is what I'm trying to accomplish: when I insert youtube video link into a form (create), then: thumb, link, title, date uploaded will get saved into the database as soon as I hit "submit." This will allow me to display these videos using the views.
