Latest commit 1052a57 Sep 21, 2016 @awead awead Bump to version 3.1.2


HydraEditor Gem Version Build Status

To use add to your gemfile:

gem 'hydra-editor'

Then run:

bundle install

Next generate the bootstrap form layouts:

rails generate simple_form:install --bootstrap

And to config/routes.rb add:

  mount HydraEditor::Engine => '/'

(Note: You do not have to mount the engine if you do not intend to use the engine's default routes.)

In your initialization set HydraEditor.models

# config/initializers/hydra_editor.rb
HydraEditor.models = ["RecordedAudio", "PdfModel"]

You can customize the names of your fields/models by adding to your translation file:

# config/locales/en.yml
        PdfModel: "PDF"
        RecordedAudio: "audio"

        dateCreated: "Date Created"
        sub_location: "Holding Sub-location"

Create a form object for each of your models.

# app/forms/recorded_audio_form.rb
class RecordedAudioForm
  include HydraEditor::Form
  self.model_class = RecordedAudio
  self.terms = [] # Terms to be edited
  self.required_fields = [] # Required fields

Add the javascript by adding this line to your app/assets/javascript/application.js:

//= require hydra-editor/hydra-editor

Add the stylesheets by adding this line to your app/assets/stylesheets/application.css:

 *= require hydra-editor/hydra-editor

(Note: The Javascript includes require Blacklight and must be put after that.)

Other customizations

By default hydra-editor provides a RecordsController with :new, :create, :edit, and :update actions implemented in the included RecordsControllerBehavior module, and a RecordsHelper module with methods implemented in RecordsHelperBehavior. If you are mounting the engine and using its routes, you can override the controller behaviors by creating your own RecordsController:

class RecordsController < ApplicationController
  include RecordsControllerBehavior

  # You custom code

If you are not mounting the engine or using its default routes, you can include RecordsControllerBehavior in your own controller and add the appropriate routes to your app's config/routes.rb.
