Module: Umlaut::UrlGeneration

Included in:
Helper
Defined in:
app/helpers/umlaut/url_generation.rb

Overview

A Rails view helper module, which over-rides #url_for and some other rails url-generating methods, so that they can be forced to generate absolute URLs if a controller iVar is set to say so.

This is used by our partial HTML api responses, so make sure html snippets have absolute URLs in them.

Instance Method Details

#path_to_image(source) ⇒ Object Also known as: image_path

over-ride path_to_image to generate complete urls with hostname and everything if @generate_url_with_host is set. This makes image_tag generate src with full url with host. See #url_for

    path = request.protocol() + request.host_with_port() + path
  end
  return path
end

#path_to_stylesheet(*args) ⇒ Object

We want stylesheets and javascripts to do the exact same thing, magic of polymorphous super() makes it work:

def path_to_stylesheet(*args)
  path = super
  if @generate_urls_with_host    
    path = request.protocol() + request.host_with_port() + path
  end
  return path
end

#url_for(*arguments) ⇒ Object

Over-ride to allow default forcing of urls with hostnames. This is neccesary for our partial_html_sections service to work properly. Just set @generate_url_with_host = true in your controller, and urls will be generated with hostnames for the remainder of that action.
