Makes your life easier optimizing an application for retina displays.

How it works

Retina Rails makes your application use high-resolution images by default. It automatically optimizes uploaded images (CarrierWave or Paperclip) for retina displays by making them twice the size and reducing the quality.

Resources

Installation

  1. Add gem 'retina_rails', '~> 2.0.0' to your Gemfile.
  2. Run bundle install.

Migrations

Add a text column named retina_dimensions. This column is used to store original dimensions of the images.

class AddRetinaDimensionsToUsers < ActiveRecord::Migration
  def self.change
    add_column :users, :retina_dimensions, :text
  end
end

CarrierWave

Simply add retina! to your uploader.

class ExampleUploader < CarrierWave::Uploader::Base

  retina!

  version :small do
    process :resize_to_fill => [30, 30]
    process :retina_quality => 80
  end

  version :large, :retina => false do
    process :resize_to_fill => [1000, 1000]
  end

end

By default it sets the retina image quality to 60 which can be overriden with process :retina_quality => 80. To disable the creation of a retina version simply call version :small, :retina => false.

Custom resize processors

You can also use your custom resize processors like so:

class ExampleUploader < CarrierWave::Uploader::Base

  retina!

  version :small, :retina => false do
    process :resize_to_fill_with_gravity => [200, 200, 'North', :jpg, 75]
    process :store_retina_dimensions
  end

end

Make sure you double the image size yourself in your processor. In this example the image will be displayed with a size of 100x100.

Paperclip

Simply add retina! to your model.

class ExampleUploader < ActiveRecord::Base

  retina!

  has_attached_file :image,
    :styles => {
       :original => ["800x800", :jpg],
       :small => ["125x125#", :jpg]
     },
     :retina => { :quality => 80 }

end

By default it sets the retina image quality to 60 which can be overriden by adding a quality option. To disable the creation of a retina version set the retina option to false :retina => false.

Displaying a retina image

retina_image_tag(@user, :image, :small, :default => [50, 40])
# or
retina_image_tag(@user, :image, :small, :default => { :width => 50, :height => 40 })

If no image is uploaded (yet) it will display the default image defined with CarrierWave or Paperclip and set the width and height attributes specified in the default option.

Voila! Now you're using Retina Rails.
