Trimmer Controller

Rack endpoint to make templates and i18n translations available in javascript.

See specs for more details.

How it works

Trimmer adds additional routes to your app:

  • /trimmer/en.js
  • /trimmer/es.js
  • etc

This defines two variables in your app: I18n.translations and Templates.

Translations

Trimmer will serve the translations you define from your config/locales files available as a JS object.

Templates

This is the cool part. You can define your own structure of client-side templates which will be:

  1. Rendered by Rails (where you can access ERB, helpers and Rails i18n)
  2. Available in JS as templates

To add templates, create a folder structure like this:

app/
  templates/
    users/
      index.jade.erb
      show.jade.erb
    settings.jade.erb

This will create a JS object with this structure:

Templates = {
  users: {
    index: "...",
    show: "..."
  },
  settings: "..."
}
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
