= Erector * http://erector.rubyforge.org * mailto:email@example.com * http://www.pivotaltracker.com/projects/482 == DESCRIPTION Erector is a Builder-like view framework, inspired by Markaby but overcoming some of its flaws. In Erector all views are objects, not template files, which allows the full power of object-oriented programming (inheritance, modular decomposition, encapsulation) in views. See the rdoc for the Erector::Widget class to learn how to make your own widgets, and visit the project site at http://erector.rubyforge.org for more documentation. == SYNOPSIS require 'erector' class Hello < Erector::Widget def render html do head do title "Hello" end body do text "Hello, " b "world!", :class => 'big' end end end end Hello.new.to_s => "<html><head><title>Hello</title></head><body>Hello, <b class=\"big\">world!</b></body></html>" == REQUIREMENTS The gem depends on rake and treetop, although this is just for using the "erect" tool, so deployed applications won't need these. Currently it also requires rails, although we plan to separate the rails-dependent code so you can use Erector cleanly in a non-Rails app. == INSTALL To install as a gem: * sudo gem install erector Then add "require 'erector'" to any files which need erector. To install as a Rails plugin: * Copy the erector source to vendor/plugins/erector in your Rails directory. When installing this way, erector is automatically available to your Rails code (no require directive is needed). == LICENSE: (The MIT License) Copyright (c) 2007-8 Pivotal Labs Permission is hereby granted, free of charge, to any person obtaining a copy of this software and associated documentation files (the "Software"), to deal in the Software without restriction, including without limitation the rights to use, copy, modify, merge, publish, distribute, sublicense, and/or sell copies of the Software, and to permit persons to whom the Software is furnished to do so, subject to the following conditions: The above copyright notice and this permission notice shall be included in all copies or substantial portions of the Software.
