Handling Rails validations with Spine Models.

From: Stephen S.

After a more-than-cursory search online - I'm swallowing my pride and come to you, hat in hand with a question.

Is there an established pattern for handing sever-side Validation errors in spine so the errors are reflected in your spine model? I'm not talking about spine's validate model that subclasses of Spine.Model have - more like errors like validates_presence_of.

The spinejs site suggests:

def create
  @page =[:page])
    respond_with(@page, status: :created, location: @page)
    respond_with(@page.errors, status: :unprocessable_entity) 


The ActiveRecord model Book validates_presence_of :name.
If your Rails app's BooksController#create action contains.

  respond_with @book
  respond_with(@book, status: :unprocessable_entity)

and you pop into a JS Console and run:

my_book = App.Book.create({}) //no name, will vail validation

my_book doesn't have the errors serialized on it - and that makes
sense because @book.to_json doesn't serialize @book's errors collection.

So - what's up - is there an established pattern for this?

If you help me I will get you a few beers...out of Pivotal's fridge.
You're welcome - no big.
