Constructor Details

#initialize(str, safe_level = nil, trim_mode = nil, eoutvar = '_erbout') ⇒ ERB

Constructs a new ERB object with the template specified in str.

An ERB object works by building a chunk of Ruby code that will output the completed template when run. If safe_level is set to a non-nil value, ERB code will be run in a separate thread with $SAFE set to the provided level.

If trim_mode is passed a String containing one or more of the following modifiers, ERB will adjust its code generation as listed:

%  enables Ruby code processing for lines beginning with %
<> omit newline for lines starting with <% and ending in %>
>  omit newline for lines ending in %>
-  omit blank lines ending in -%>

eoutvar can be used to set the name of the variable ERB will build up its output in. This is useful when you need to run multiple ERB templates through the same binding and/or when you want to control where output ends up. Pass the name of the variable to be used inside a String.

Example

require "erb"

# build data class
class Listings
  PRODUCT = { :name => "Chicken Fried Steak",
              :desc => "A well messages pattie, breaded and fried.",
              :cost => 9.95 }

  attr_reader :product, :price

  def initialize( product = "", price = "" )
    @product = product
    @price = price
  end

  def build
    b = binding
    # create and run templates, filling member data variables
    ERB.new("<%= PRODUCT[:name] %>\n<%= PRODUCT[:desc] %>\n".gsub(/^\s+/, ""), 0, "", "@product").result b
    ERB.new("<%= PRODUCT[:name] %> -- <%= PRODUCT[:cost] %>\n<%= PRODUCT[:desc] %>\n".gsub(/^\s+/, ""), 0, "", "@price").result b
  end
end

# setup template data
listings = Listings.new
listings.build

puts listings.product + "\n" + listings.price

Generates

Chicken Fried Steak
A well messages pattie, breaded and fried.

Chicken Fried Steak -- 9.95
A well messages pattie, breaded and fried.

Class Method Details

.versionObject

Returns revision information for the erb.rb module.

def self.version
  "erb.rb [2.1.0 #{ERB::Revision.split[1]}]"
end

Instance Method Details

#def_class(superklass = Object, methodname = 'result') ⇒ Object

Define unnamed class which has methodname as instance method, and return it.

example:

class MyClass_
  def initialize(arg1, arg2)
    @arg1 = arg1;  @arg2 = arg2
  end
end
filename = 'example.rhtml'  # @arg1 and @arg2 are used in example.rhtml
erb = ERB.new(File.read(filename))
erb.filename = filename
MyClass = erb.def_class(MyClass_, 'render()')
print MyClass.new('foo', 123).render()

def def_class(superklass=Object, methodname='result')
  cls = Class.new(superklass)
  def_method(cls, methodname, @filename || '(ERB)')
  cls
end

#def_method(mod, methodname, fname = '(ERB)') ⇒ Object

Define methodname as instance method of mod from compiled Ruby source.

example:

filename = 'example.rhtml'   # 'arg1' and 'arg2' are used in example.rhtml
erb = ERB.new(File.read(filename))
erb.def_method(MyClass, 'render(arg1, arg2)', filename)
print MyClass.new.render('foo', 123)

  magic_comment = "#coding:#{@enc}\n"
  mod.module_eval do
    eval(magic_comment + "def #{methodname}\n" + src + "\nend\n", binding, fname, -2)
  end
end

#def_module(methodname = 'erb') ⇒ Object

Create unnamed module, define methodname as instance method of it, and return it.

example:

filename = 'example.rhtml'   # 'arg1' and 'arg2' are used in example.rhtml
erb = ERB.new(File.read(filename))
erb.filename = filename
MyModule = erb.def_module('render(arg1, arg2)')
class MyClass
  include MyModule

#make_compiler(trim_mode) ⇒ Object

Creates a new compiler for ERB. See ERB::Compiler.new for details

# File 'lib/erb.rb', line 807

def make_compiler(trim_mode)
  ERB::Compiler.new(trim_mode)
end

#result(b = new_toplevel) ⇒ Object

Executes the generated ERB code to produce a completed template, returning the results of that code. (See ERB::new for details on how this process can be affected by safe_level.)

b accepts a Binding object which is used to set the context of code evaluation.

    }.call
  else
    eval(@src, b, (@filename || '(erb)'), 0)
  end
end

#run(b = new_toplevel) ⇒ Object

Generate results and print them. (see ERB#result)

# File 'lib/erb.rb', line 831

def run(b=new_toplevel)
  print self.result(b)
end

#set_eoutvar(compiler, eoutvar = '_erbout') ⇒ Object

Can be used to set eoutvar as described in ERB::new. It's probably easier to just use the constructor though, since calling this method requires the setup of an ERB compiler object.
