Spree / Limit Backorders

When a product/variant is marked as backorderable, spree allows an unlimited number of backorders.

This extenstion allows you set a cap for backorders in the admin.


To set the limit:

  • Go to Admin -> Products -> Edit -> Stock Locations
  • Check off the Backorderable option
  • Enter a max value (a max zero allows infinite backorders)
  • Click save


Add spree_limit_backorders to your Gemfile:

gem 'spree_limit_backorders', github: 'joshnuss/spree_limit_backorders'

Bundle your dependencies and run the installation generator:

bundle exec rails g spree_limit_backorders:install


First bundle your dependencies, then run rake. rake will default to building the dummy app if it does not exist, then it will run specs. The dummy app can be regenerated by using rake test_app.

bundle exec rake

When testing your applications integration with this extension you may use it's factories. Simply add this require statement to your spec_helper:

require 'spree_limit_backorders/factories'
