make_resourceful and odd controller names

I've been debugging make_resourceful to try to figure out why it fails to generate an index action for a controller named NewsController. After a couple of hours I found the now slightly obvious reason in lib/resourceful/default/accessors.rb...

The singular? method returns true for "News".

A simple solution would be to define singular? in your controller and let it return false.


class NewsController < ApplicationController
def singular?; false end

make_resourceful do
actions :all
