Example
=======
This plugin uses jQuery to manage it's JavaScript needs. The jRails plugin
(http://ennerchi.com/projects/jrails) is recommended -- it converts Rails
Prototype/Scriptaculous helpers to jQuery.
After installing the plugin, perform
rake tank_engine:install
to copy the public assets (images, javascript, and CSS) to the public folder.
Tank engine places an iPhone layout file in app/views/layouts/application.iphone.erb.
Controller Usage
================
The module ActionController::IphoneController adds support for recognizing
Mobile Safari as the :iphone pseudo-MIME type.
In your controller (can be ApplicationController) add the line
acts_as_iphone_controller
By default, the following requests are redirected to the iphone format.
* Requests with a user agent including "Mobile Safari". To change this
default, pass the option :ignore_iphone_user_agent => true to
acts_as_iphone_controller.
* Requests which end in ".iphone". To change this default, pass the option
:format => <YOURFORMAT> to acts_as_iphone_controller.
* Requests to a subdomain "iphone". To change this default, pass the option
:subdomain => <YOURFORMAT> to acts_as_iphone_controller.
The option :test_mode => true will cause all requests to be treated as iPhone
requests.
To capture these requests, you can use :iphone as part of a respond_to block:
respond_to do |format|
format.html # show.html.erb
format.xml { render :xml => @feature }
format.iphone
end
The file extension for the view is .iphone.erb
The module TankEngineHelper provides a number of helper methods for creating
iPhone structures in your views.
When this plugin is installed, form builders have a new helper "toggle" that
creates an iPhone style toggle switch.
