Module: Keynote::Rumble

Included in:
Presenter
Defined in:
lib/keynote/rumble.rb

Overview

HTML markup in Ruby.

To invoke Rumble, call the build_html method in a presenter.

1. Syntax

There are four basic forms:

tagname(content)

tagname(content, attributes)

tagname do
  content
end

tagname(attributes) do
  content
end

Example:

build_html do
  div :id => :content do
    h1 'Hello World', :class => :main
  end
end
<div id="content">
  <h1 class="main">Hello World</h1>
</div>

2. Element classes and IDs

You can easily add classes and IDs by hooking methods onto the container:

div.content! do
  h1.main 'Hello World'
end

You can mix and match as you'd like (div.klass.klass1.id!), but you can only provide content and attributes on the last call:

# This is not valid:
form(:action => :post).world do
  input
end

# But this is:
form.world(:action => :post) do
  input
end

3. Text

Sometimes you need to insert plain text:

p.author do
  text 'Written by '
  a 'Bluebie', :href => 'http://creativepony.com/'
  br
  text link_to 'Home', '/'
end
<p class="author">
  Written by
  <a href="http://creativepony.com/">Bluebie</a>
  <br>
  <a href="/">Home</a>
</p>

You can also insert literal text by returning it from a block (or passing it as a parameter to the non-block form of a tag method):

p.author do
  link_to 'Home', '/'
end
<p class="author">
  <a href="/">Home</a>
</p>

Be aware that Rumble ignores the string in a block if there's other tags there:

div.comment do
  div.author "BitPuffin"
  "<p>Silence!</p>"
end
<div class="comment">
  <div class="author">BitPuffin</div>
</div>

4. Escaping

The version of Rumble that's embedded in Keynote follows normal Rails escaping rules. When text enters Rumble (by returning it from a block, passing it as a parameter to a tag method, or using the text method), it's escaped if and only if html_safe? returns false. That means that Rails helpers generally don't need special treatment, but strings need to have html_safe called on them to avoid escaping.

5. In practice

class ArticlePresenter < Keynote::Presenter
  presents :article

  def published_at
    build_html do
      div.published_at do
        span.date publication_date
        span.time publication_time
      end
    end
  end

  def publication_date
    article.published_at.strftime("%A, %B %e").squeeze(" ")
  end

  def publication_time
    article.published_at.strftime("%l:%M%p").delete(" ")
  end
end

Constant Summary

BASIC =

A basic set of commonly-used HTML tags. These are included as methods on all presenters by default.

COMPLETE =

A more complete set of HTML5 tags. You can use these by calling use_html_5_tags in a presenter's class body.

Instance Method Details

#build_htmlObject

Generate HTML using Rumble tag methods. If tag methods are called outside a build_html block, they'll raise an exception.

# File 'lib/keynote/rumble.rb', line 328

def build_html
  ctx = @rumble_context
  @rumble_context = Context.new
  yield
  rumble_cleanup(ctx).to_s
end

#text(str = nil, &blk) ⇒ Object

Generate a text node. This is helpful in situations where an element contains both text and markup.
