Customizing attribute partials

Occasionally you might want to change how specific types of attributes appear across all dashboards. You can customize the following built in field types:

For example, you might want all Number values to round to three decimal points.

To get started, run the appropriate rails generator:

rails generate administrate:views:field number

This will generate three files:

You can generate the partials for all field types by passing all to the generator.

rails generate administrate:views:field all

The generated templates will have documentation describing which variables are in scope. The rendering part of the partial will look like:

<%= %>

Changing numbers to display to three decimal places might look like this:

<%= %>

If you only want to change how an attribute appears on a single page (e.g. index), you may delete the unnecessary templates.
