TabMenu

TabMenu is an easy way to create tabs for your Rails Application. It requires Rails 2.2.2 or greater

Examples

<%- tab_menu "user_menu tabbed" do |t| -%>
  <%= t.tab "Profile", "/account" %>
  <%= t.tab "Change Settings", "/account/edit" %>
<%- end -%>

This will render:

<ul class="user_menu tabbed">
  <li class="active"><a href="/account">Profile</a></li>
  <li><a href="/account/edit">Change Settings</li>
</ul>

You can now set the current tab like so:

  <%- tab_menu "user_menu", :current_tab => "profile" do |t| -%>
    <%= t.tab "Profile", "/account" %>
    <%= t.tab "Change Settings", "/account/edit" %>
  <%- end -%>

note the active class is designated for the current url and that url helpers are allowed in the second argument

TODO

  • Abstract TabBuilder to support AJAX loading of tabs (different types of builders)
  • Make this a gem
  • Submenus

    Thanks

    • Josh Goebel for identifying a hack in Rails 2.2 to resolve output buffer issues
    • Ryan Angilly for reporting defects
