easy_partials

EasyPartials are a way to make partials in Rails even easier! This is an expansion of a blog post by Mike Stone at “smellsblue.blogspot.com/2009/11/easy-partials-in-rails.html”.

FEATURES:

  • Allows easy partial invocation syntax, with simpler local variable passing

  • Allows configurable shared directories for partials

  • Rails 3 compatible

SYNOPSIS:

<% _my_partial :var => “123” do %>

<p>
  Some block content.
</p>

<% end %>

The above would render a partial (as with <%= render :partial => “my_partial” %>), with the local variable “var” set to “123”, and the local variable “body” set to the paragraph “some block content”, HTML tags included.

Note that you need to use <% rather than <%=.

For a shared partial, use a line like the following in environment.rb or in a file under initializers:

Easypartials.shared_directories = ["mydir1", "mydir2"]

This will set up app/views/mydir1 and app/views/mydir2 as the locations to look for partials when a directory isn't explicitly given.

This plugin will first check the directory of the view being rendered, then check the shared directories in the order given.

REQUIREMENTS:

You'll need a recent-ish version of Rails. You'll also need hoe and newgem, but you get them automatically when you install easypartials.

INSTALL:

sudo gem install easy_partials

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.

  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.

  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)

  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
