When you make use of Active Record’s convenient acts_as_list modifier in Rails, what does this do for you? Most of the info out there describes the way acts_as_list manages position of items, ordering them like items in a, well, ordered list.
That’s great, but what about new helper methods provided by acts_as_list? Doesn’t it make juggling list items easier? Or do you simply have to fend for yourself when you want to rearrange your list?
Question: What additional methods are provided when using acts_as_list?
