Malt

Homepage | Development | Report Issue | Mailing List

DESCRIPTION

Malt provides a factory framework for rendering a variety of template and markup document formats. Malt has a very object-oriented design utilizing separate engine adapter classes and format classes. This makes Malt easy to maintain, debug and extend, and thus more robust. In fact, Malt supports template caching and ERB compilation by default, which was very easy to implement thanks to it's clean design.

SYNOPSIS

Functional API

Malt.render(:file=>'foo.erb', :to=>:html, :data=>data)

Where data is a data source of some type. Malt will see that the file is an ERB template and render it accordingly.

The output of this call will be the HTML String.

Object-oriented API

Malt.file('foo.erb').to_html(data).to_s

Where data is a data source of some type. Malt will see that the file is an ERB template and render it accordingly.

To get the render text you simple need to provide the template or markup type.

Malt.text(text, :type=>:erb).to_html(data).to_s

Notice the #to_s. This is needed because #to_html returns an Malt::Format::HTML object.

LIMITATIONS

JRuby and Rubinus users: Not all template systems work with your Ruby. Consequently not all of Malt will work either. Thankfully Malt only requires template engines as they are needed, so it will work fine in most cases. But, you will need to avoid engines that depend on compiled code, such as less and coffee-script.

INSTALATION

To install with RubyGems simply open a console and type:

$ gem install

For a site install you will need Ruby Setup and the compressed packages (tar.gz or zip usually). Uncompress the package cd into it and run setup.rb, e.g.

$ tar -xvzf malt-x.y.z.tgz
$ cd malt-x.y.z.tgz
$ sudo setup.rb
