BBRuby

DESCRIPTION:

BBRuby is a BBCode (www.bbcode.org) implementation for Ruby. It will convert strings with BBCode markup to their HTML equivalent.

INSTALL:

To install as a gem:

sudo gem install bb-ruby

To install as a plugin:

./script/plugin install git://github.com/cpjolicoeur/bb-ruby.git

USAGE:

require 'bb-ruby' # (only needed if installed as a gem)

BBRuby has been included directly into the String class for use on any string object:

text = "[b]Here is some bold text[/b] followed by some [u]underlined text[/u]"
output = text.bbcode_to_html
text.bbcode_to_html!

BBRuby will auto-escape HTML tags. To prevent this just pass false as the second param:

output = text.bbcode_to_html({}, false)

Only allow certain tags:

output = text.bbcode_to_html({}, true, :enable, :image, :bold, :quote)

Disable certain tags:

output = text.bbcode_to_html({}, true, :disable, :image, :bold, :quote)

Alternative Direct usage:

output = BBRuby.to_html(bbcode_markup)

Define your own translation, in order to be more flexible:

my_blockquote = {
  'Quote' => [
    /\[quote(:.*)?=(.*?)\](.*?)\[\/quote\1?\]/mi,
    '<div class="quote"><p><cite>\2</cite></p><blockquote>\3</blockquote></div>',
    'Quote with citation',
    '[quote=mike]please quote me[/quote]',
    :quote
  ],      
}

text.bbcode_to_html(my_blockquote)

You can also use the simple_format method of ActionPack by using the *_with_formatting methods:

output = text.bbcode_to_html_with_formatting
output = text.bbcode_to_html_with_formatting!
