Custom Index

If the supplied Active Admin index components are insufficient for your project feel free to define your own. Index classes inherit from ActiveAdmin::Component and require a build method and an index_name class method.

module ActiveAdmin
  module Views
    class IndexAsMyIdea < ActiveAdmin::Component

      def build(page_presenter, collection)
        # ...

      def self.index_name


The build method takes a PagePresenter object and collection of whatever you choose.

The index_name class method takes no arguments and returns a string that should be representative of the class name. If this method is not defined, your index component will not be able take advantage of Active Admin’s multiple index pages feature.
