Rails Integration for SWFObject

This gem integrates SWFObject with the Rails asset pipeline. It has been tested with Rails 3.1, 3.2 and 4.0.

Installation

Just add it to your Gemfile:

gem "swfobject-rails"

Quick Start

Add to your application.js:

//= require swfobject

Place your SWFs you want to incude somewhere in the rails assets directories (ex. app/assets/swfs/...).

swfobject-rails includes a helper for generating static embed code, #swf_tag:

<%= swf_tag "video", :id => "my_video", :params => {:loop => true}, :flashvars => {:debug => true} do %>
  <p>You should download the latest Flash player!</p>
<% end %>

This would generate the following HTML:

<object id="my_video" name="my_video" width="100%" height="100%" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000">
  <param name="movie" value="/assets/video.swf" />
  <param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
  <param name="loop" value="true" />
  <param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" />
  <param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" />
  <param name="flashvars" value="debug=true" />
  <!--[if !IE]>-->
    <object data="/assets/video.swf" width="100%" height="100%">
      <param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
      <param name="loop" value="true" />
      <param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" />
      <param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" />
      <param name="flashvars" value="debug=true" />
      <!--<![endif]-->
        <p>You should download the latest Flash player!</p>
      <!--[if !IE]>-->
    </object>
  <!--<![endif]-->
</object>
<script type="text/javascript">
  swfobject.registerObject("my_video", "9.0.0", "/assets/expressInstall.swf");
</script>
