Placeholdit

A Rails view helper for placeholder images via http://placehold.it

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'placeholdit'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install placeholdit

Usage

A basic 500x500 placeholder image:

<%= placeholdit_image_tag "500x500" %>

A basic 250 width 500 height placeholder image”

<%= placeholdit_image_tag "250x500" %>

The same placeholder image with custom text:

<%= placeholdit_image_tag "500", text: "Buy me!" %>

The same placeholder image with a blue background:

<%= placeholdit_image_tag "500", text: "Buy me!", background_color: '#004eff' %>

The same placeholder image with a blue background and red text (not recommended):

<%= placeholdit_image_tag "500", text: "Buy me!", background_color: '#004eff', text_color: '#ff0000' %>

Alternatively, calling placeholdit will work as well:

<%= placeholdit "500" %>
