Welcome to your new gem! In this directory, you'll find the files you need to be able to package up your Ruby library into a gem. Put your Ruby code in the file lib/mirador_rails. To experiment with that code, run bin/console for an interactive prompt.

TODO: Delete this and the text above, and describe your gem


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'mirador_rails'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install mirador_rails

Mount the Engine

In your routes.rb file mount the MiradorRails::Engine

mount MiradorRails::Engine, at: MiradorRails::Engine.locales_mount_path


You can require the mirador js by requiring the following:

//= require mirador

And the css

 *= require mirador

You may not want to do this in your application.js, as the JavaScript by itself may add over 1.8MB to your application.js payload.

Initialize mirador in a view

<%= mirador_tag() %>

The mirador_tag method takes several arguments which allow for customization of the mirador view.

# @param [String] id
# @param [String] height
# @param [String] width
# @param [String] position
# @param [String] display
# @param [Hash] options Mirador settings


After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake spec to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to rubygems.org.


From a new Mirador release build, run the rake task with the tag:

$ bundle exec rake update[v2.1.4]

Delete FontAwesome and MaterialIcons from mirador-combined.css. We include this in dependent gems instead.
