TinymceFm gem (v0.0.2) (previously - TinymceFilemanager plugin)

TinyMCE wrapper, that takes care of managing media files (images, videos) and links within your application.

It will be published as official gem after some tests, etc.

Installation

This plugin requires mini_magick gem to work (so also - imagemagick binaries installed on server).

If you want, you can also manage multimedia files (ie. videos), but then you will need to have ffmpeg installed on your machine (thumb generation).

  1. Add gem to you Gemfile:

    gem 'tinymce_fm'
  2. Add Engine to routes.rb file:

    Freshmag::Application.routes.draw do
      # TinymceFm Engine
      mount TinymceFm::Engine => "/tinymce_fm"
    
      # ...
     root :to=>"welcome#index"
    end
  3. Add include line in controller that will manage images ( controller Pages for example )

    include TinymceFm::Filemanager
  4. In layout (best in page <head> section) add:

    <%= tinymce_javascript_tag "pages" %>

    where “pages” is name of controller from last step

    The theme defaults to tinymce_filemanager's “advanced” theme flavour however you can pass an additional parameter to the tinymce_managed_javascript_tag which will allow you to use a custom theme or the provided simple theme.

    <%= tinymce_javascript_tag "pages", "simple" %>
  5. Add tag in form:

    <%= tinymce_tag "some_field_name", "some field content" %>

    or use builder method:

    <%= f.tinymce :some_field_name %>

Basic Usage

controller “pages”:

class PagesController < ApplicationController
  include TinymceFm::Filemanager
  def index
  ...
end

application layout:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
  <head>
    <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html;charset=UTF-8" />
    ...
    <%= tinymce_javascript_tag "pages" %>
    ...
  </head>
  <body>
    ...
  </body>
</html>

optional theme:

The theme defaults to tinymce_filemanager's “advanced” theme flavour however you can pass an additional parameter to the tinymce_managed_javascript_tag which will allow you to use a custom theme or the provided simple theme.

<%= tinymce_javascript_tag "pages", "simple" %>

pages new view:

<h1>New page</h1>  
<% form_for(@page) do |f| %>
<%= f.error_messages %>
  ...
  <p>
    <%= f.label :body %><br />
    <%= f.tinymce :body %>
  </p>
  ...
  <p>
    <%= f.submit  "Create" %>
  </p>
<% end %>

<%= link_to 'Back', pages_path %>

Sample Configuration

for “pages” controller

class PagesController < ApplicationController

  include TinymceFm::Filemanager

  # accept only jpeg and gif for images
  image_accept_mime_types ['image/jpeg', 'image/gif', 'image/png']

  # limit image file size to 2MB
  image_file_size_limit 2.megabytes

  # accept only mpeg and flash files(swf) for media
  media_accept_mime_types ['video/mpeg', 'application/x-shockwave-flash']

  # limit media file size to 15MB
  media_file_size_limit 15.megabytes

  #thumbs created into '_small_' subdir
  thumbs_subdir 'small'

  #images save to RAILS_ROOT/public/manager/images thumbs in RAILS_ROOT/public/manager/images/_small_
  image_save_into_public_subdir 'manager/images'

  #images save to RAILS_ROOT/public/manager/images thumbs in RAILS_ROOT/public/manager/images/_small_
  media_save_into_public_subdir 'manager/media'

  #classes of objects, that can be browsed through LinkBrowser (separate by comma for multiple classes)
  link_classes_accepted [Page,Category] 

  ...

end

TODO

  • link browser should accept chained queries (ie. Page.where('visible=?',true).order('updated_at DESC') )

  • tests!
