YUI-rails

No-hassle integration of YUI with the Rails asset pipeline.

Usage

This gem vendors the latest YUI 3 for easy use. Once installed, add YUI to your app by adding:

//= require yui

To your app/assets/javascripts/application.js.

You can use debug or pre-minimized versions by instead requiring yui-debug or yui-min.

Requirements

Rails 3.1 or greater.

Installation

Existing Rails project

Add the gem to your Gemfile:

gem 'yui-rails'

Update your gem bundle:

$ bundle install

New Rails project

You can use the --javascript flag with rails to specify your preferred library when creating a new rails project. For example:

rails new foo --javascript=yui

This will create a new project named 'foo' with yui-rails already installed.

TODO

Plans for improvement in no particular order:

  • Decide how much (all?) of YUI to vendor (with debug versions everything is ~15.5mb, seems awfully heavy)
  • Provide intelligent loader to mimic CDN's ability to load a group of dependencies on demand as a single file

Development

  • Update the YUI library version with ./update-yui.sh 3.8.1 where 3.8.1 is the YUI version to update to. Commit the changes, and then rake install. You should also change the gem version in yui/rails/version.rb
  • Run tests with rake
