Serenade.js for Ruby, Rails, and Sprockets

Serenade.js for Ruby

Serenade.js is a JavaScript client side MVC framework. This gem makes Serenade.js available for usage with Sprockets, or the asset pipeline in Ruby on Rails version 3.1 or later.

Installation

To use Serenade with Rails, add Serenade to the assets group in your Gemfile:

group :assets do
  gem "serenade", :require => "serenade/rails"
end

You can now require Serenade in your app/assets/javascripts/application.js file:

//= require serenade

Serenade should now be loaded and ready. See the Serenade README for examples.

Using Serenade with Sprockets

If you are not using Rails, you can still use Serenade with just Sprockets:

gem "serenade", :require => "serenade/sprockets"

You’ll also need to register the Serenade asset path with your Sprockets environment.

sprockets.append_path Serenade::ASSET_PATH

Serenade.js views and the asset pipeline

Serenade.js allows Sprockets or the Rails asset pipeline to compile your Serenade views for you, just use the extension .serenade on any asset file. Your views will be precompiled server-side before being served to the client.

For example, if you create the following view in app/assets/javascripts/test.serenade:

h1 "Hello " @name

Now you can render this view:

var model = new Serenade.Model({ name: "Vega" })
document.body.appendChild(Serenade.render('test', model));

And, like in all Serenade.js views, you can change your model and see the DOM update itself accordingly:

model.name = "Mercedes" // HTML now says <h1>Hello Mercedes</h1>

A note about the view path

If the path to your view starts with views, that initial part is stripped off, so you could have placed the above view in app/assets/javascripts/views/test.serenade without changing the code.
