def element_editor_for(element)
  capture do
    yield ElementEditorHelper.new(self, element: element) if block_given?
  end
end

#element_view_for(element, options = {}) ⇒ Object

Block-level helper for element views. Constructs a DOM element wrapping your content element and provides a block helper object you can use for concise access to Alchemy's various helpers.

Example:

<%= element_view_for(element) do |el| %>
  <%= el.render :title %>
  <%= el.render :body %>
  <%= link_to "Go!", el.ingredient(:target_url) %>
<% end %>

You can override the tag, ID and class used for the generated DOM element:

<%= element_view_for(element, tag: 'span', id: 'my_id', class: 'thing') do |el| %>
   <%- ... %>
<% end %>

If you don't want your view to be wrapped into an extra element, simply set `tag` to `false`:

<%= element_view_for(element, tag: false) do |el| %>
   <%- ... %>
<% end %>

Parameters:

  • element (Alchemy::Element)

    The element to display.

  • options (Hash) (defaults to: {})

    Additional options.

Options Hash (options):

  • :tag (Object) — default: :div

    The HTML tag to be used for the wrapping element.

  • :id (Object) — default: the element's dom_id

    The wrapper tag's DOM ID.

  • :class (Object) — default: the element's essence name

    The wrapper tag's DOM class.

  • :tags_formatter (Object)

    A lambda used for formatting the element's tags (see Alchemy::ElementsHelper::element_tags_attributes). Set to false to not include tags in the wrapper element.
