Jekyll Plugin: SWFObject Tag

SWFObject Tag is a Liquid plugin for Jekyll to embed Flash files (*.swf) using SWFObject

Installation

1) Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'jekyll-swfobject'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install jekyll-swfobject

2) Add in a plugin file within your Jekyll project's _plugins directory:

# _plugins/my-plugin.rb
require 'jekyll-swfobject'

3) Link SWFObject in your layout template or page within <head> or before {% swfobject %} :

`<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/swfobject/2.2/swfobject.js"></script>`

Usage

Tag

{% swfobject swf_url %}Flash Player required.{% endswfobject %}

Note: Because SWFObject Tag is a Liquid::Block, you have to close any {% swfobject %} with {% endswfobject %} in your templates. Also an alternative content within the tags is needed.

Alternative HTML content (required)

{% swfobject swf_url %}
<p>Latest <a href='http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer'>Flash Player Plugin</a> is required.</p>
{% endswfobject %}

Optional parameters

All optional parameters are defined using key:value pairs.

{% swfobject swf_url id:myFlash content_id:flashcontent width:500 height:600  %}{% endswfobject %}

Note: Don't use whitespaces between : to avoid issues rendering templates.

For all optional parameters check section Parameters below.

Optional parameters defined in _config.yml

swfobject:
  height: 350
  width: 200
  express_install_url: expressInstall.swf

You can define any optional paramter in _config.yml. For an overiew of all optional parameters check section Parameters below.

Parameters

Required parameter

swf_url - Path to SWF, which has to be embedded

Optional parameters

All optional parameters can be defined within {% swfobject %} and / or using _config.yml. Parameters defined in _config.yml will be overridden by tag parameters.

content_id - Id of the div container, which will be replaced by SWFObject to embed SWF

height - Height (px, %, em or rem) of the embedded SWF and of the surrounded <div> (default: 100%)

width - Width (px, %, em or rem) of the embedded SWF and of the surrounded <div> (default: 100%).

Note: For a better support of fluid and responsive layouts using em, rem etc. the plugin creates an extra div, which wrappes the generated <object> tag. This wrapper div will be sized using values of height and width. The wrapper can be addressed by using the content_id + -wrapper, e.g. flashcontent-wrapper.

version - Version of the Flash Player Plugin (default: 10.0)

flashvars - String of flashvars using key=value pairs combinend with &, e.g. name1=hello&name2=world

express_install_url - URL of the expressInstall.swf

callback_function - Callback function to check success or failure of creating a Flash plug-in <object>
