Interactor Rails

Gem Build Coverage Maintainability

Interactor Rails provides Rails support for the Interactor gem.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem "interactor-rails", "~> 2.0"

Interactor Rails is compatible with Ruby 2.3, 2.4, or 2.5 on Rails 4.2, 5.0, 5.1, 5.2 or 6.0.


Interactor Rails ensures that app/interactors is included in your autoload paths, and provides generators for your convenience.

rails generate interactor authenticate_user

adds to app/interactors/authenticate_user.rb:

class AuthenticateUser
  include Interactor

  def call
    # TODO

There is also a generator for organizers.

rails generate interactor:organizer place_order charge_card send_thank_you fulfill_order

adds to app/interactors/place_order.rb:

class PlaceOrder
  include Interactor::Organizer

  organize ChargeCard, SendThankYou, FulfillOrder
