A pack of pre-built Netzke components - such as grid, form, tab panel, etc.
- Ruby 1.9.2 (1.8.7 may work, too)
- Rails ~> 3.1.0
- Ext JS = 4.0.2a
In your Gemfile:
For the "edge" stuff, tell bundler to get the gem straight from GitHub:
gem 'netzke-basepack', :git => "git://github.com/skozlov/netzke-basepack.git"
Embed a basepack component into a view as any other Netzke component, e.g.:
<%= netzke :books, :class_name => 'Netzke::Basepack::GridPanel', :model => 'Book' %>
For more examples, see http://demo.netzke.com, and look into test/basepack_test_app.
Testing and playing with Netzke Basepack
Netzke Basepack is bundled with Cucumber and RSpec tests. If you would like to contribute to the project, you may want to learn how to run the tests.
Besides, the bundled test application is a convenient playground for those who search to experiment with the framework.
After starting up the test app, you can see the list of functional test components on the index page (along with links to the source code):
Note on testing with DataMapper/Sequel Support
To install the test app with DataMapper or Sequel, put ORM=dm or ORM=sq into your environment. For example to set-up DataMapper support run
# in test/basepack_test_app ORM=dm bundle install
To run the test app in DataMapper-Mode (will use DataMapper models instead of ActiveRecord models)
# in test/basepack_test_app ORM=dm rails s
To run the test suite
# in test/basepack_test_app ORM=dm bundle exec rake
NOTE: netzke-basepack is not dependant on neither DataMapper nor Sequel. It will pick the right DataAdapter for your models automatically. ActiveRecord is still included in Gemfile of the test app, as netzke-persistance is used which uses ActiveRecord. If you don't use netzke-persistence, then you don't need to include ActiveRecord.
DataMapper support is incomplete, as I didn't find a good way to sort by an association's column when the association needs a LEFT OUTER JOIN (i.e. nullable foreign key in many_to_one).
- you can't use polymorphic associations for the time being, as the sequel_polymorphic plugin is not supported by netzke-basepack
- SearchPanel is broken atm. When it's fixed, Sequel support for SearchPanel triggered queries should be implemented.
Netzke Basepack can make use of FamFamFam Silk icon set (http://www.famfamfam.com/archive/silk-icons-thats-your-lot/). To enable this, download the icons and put the "icons" folder into your app's public/images folder. Then restart your application.
Ext 3 support
Versions 0.6.x are for you if you're using Ext 3 (hardly maintained)
