I'm creating a small rails app, but getting started on it is the hardest part.
Basically, I know I need a user model, that simply has the attributes of username and password.
But the system works like this: a user logs in, and then can create an 'appeal' to partake in extramural activies by filling out a form. The form consists of stuff like 'location', 'activity', 'insurance code', 'date range', etc. So my question is - is the 'appeal' a model, with each of the questions on the form being an attribute (similar to how user has attributes username and password)? If this is the case, how do I say what each thing is? Like, if in the form it's a radio button, or 2 calendars to select a date range, what data type is that?
Thanks in advance, I'm really just beginning on my rails journey so excuse my noobishness.
