Description

Turn your boring “Lorem ipsum” website and placeholder images into a beautiful display of artwork.

View Helper

# Searches wikimedia for passed in term. Caches all initial results. # As you search through results, image files will generally follow the form e.g. “File:<image name>.jpg - Wikimedia Commons” # Retains the original image and will generate scaled versions based on coordinates passed in # Allow for an optional watermark that defaults to the text “Placeholder” sexy_image('dogs', :width => 100, :height => 100)

Model

# If you want to replace your boring user place holder image, you can do the following user.icon = SexItUp.sexy_image(['flowers','stars','butterflies'], :width => 75, :height => 75)

Rake Task

# The inital caching of images for a given term may be slow (hence causing your initial page view to be slow), so you can “pre-warm” the image # cache for a given search term by using the following rake task. rake sex_it_up:cache butterflies

# Show Lovdbyless or some other social site with a before (with boring placeholders) and after (with exciting images) # Show a screenshot of a sample site with the Lorem text and placeholder images
