message_div_helpers

Summary

A little plugin for Rails that gives you a handy way of creating a div to display a message to the user -- whether an informational message or a message indicating success or failure -- and doing so in a consistent way.

Examples

<%= message_div_for :notice, flash[:notice] %>

<%= message_div_for :success, @success, {}, :style => "border: 1px solid green" %>

<% message_div_for :error do %>
  Some content goes here
<% end %>

Installation

Nothing special here, just the ordinary:

script/plugin install git://github.com/mcmire/message_div_helpers.git

Be aware that when you install the plugin, three images will be installed to public/images/message_div_helpers. These are just icons for each of the message types, taken from the fabulous "silk" icon set at famfamfam.com. Also, a stylesheet is installed to public/stylesheet/message_div_helpers.css. These add styling to the error divs themselves.

Support

If you find a bug or have a feature request, I want to know about it! Feel free to file a Github issue, or do one better and fork the project on Github and send me a pull request or patch. Be sure to add tests if you do so, though.

You can also email me, or find me on Twitter.
