Build an Event Ticketing System with Rails

Build an Event Ticketing System with Rails

Building an event ticketing system can be a complex task, but with the use of the Ruby on Rails framework, the process can be streamlined and efficient. Building an event ticketing system with Rails involves several steps. Below is a simplified guide with examples to get you started:

Step 1: Set Up Your Rails Project

rails new EventTicketingSystem
cd EventTicketingSystem

Step 2: Generate Models and Migrate Database

rails generate model Event name:string date:date location:string
rails generate model Ticket event:references price:decimal status:string
rails db:migrate

Step 3: Set Up Associations

# app/models/event.rb
class Event < ApplicationRecord
 has_many :tickets
# app/models/ticket.rb
class Ticket < ApplicationRecord
 belongs_to :event

Step 4: Create Controllers

rails generate controller Events
rails generate controller Tickets

Step 5: Implement Controllers and Views

# app/controllers/events_controller.rb
class EventsController < ApplicationController
 def index
 @events = Event.all
 def show
 @event = Event.find(params[:id])
# app/controllers/tickets_controller.rb
class TicketsController < ApplicationController
 def new
 @event = Event.find(params[:event_id])
 @ticket =
 def create
 @event = Event.find(params[:event_id])
 @ticket =
 redirect_to event_path(@event)
 def ticket_params
 params.require(:ticket).permit(:price, :status)

Step 6: Create Views

<!-- app/views/events/index.html.erb -->
 <% @events.each do |event| %>
 <li><%= link_to, event_path(event) %></li>
 <% end %>
<!-- app/views/events/show.html.erb -->
<h1><%= %></h1>
<p>Date: <%= %></p>
<p>Location: <%= @event.location %></p>
<%= link_to "Buy Ticket", new_event_ticket_path(@event) %>
<!-- app/views/tickets/new.html.erb -->
<h1>Buy Ticket for <%= %></h1>
<%= form_with(model: [@event, @ticket], local: true) do |form| %>
 <%= form.label :price %>
 <%= form.text_field :price %> </div> <div> <%= form.label :status %> <%= form.text_field :status %> </div> <div> <%= form.submit %> </div> <% end %>

Step 7: Set Up Routes

# config/routes.rb
Rails.application.routes.draw do
 resources :events do
 resources :tickets
 root 'events#index'

Step 8: Run the Application

Visit http://localhost:3000 to see your event ticketing system.
This is a basic example, and you may want to enhance it by adding user authentication, payment processing, validations, and more features depending on your requirements. Always consider security best practices and adhere to the specific needs of your event ticketing application. By leveraging the power and flexibility of the Ruby on Rails framework, we can create a dynamic ruby on rails application that streamlines the ticketing process and enhances the overall event experience.
