Common View Helpers

A set of view helpers I find myself using in most Rails applications.

Installation

cd my_rails_app
script/plugin install git://github.com/zeke/common_view_helpers.git

Summary

# Use words if within the last week, otherwise use date
# Show year if not this year
time_ago_in_words_or_date(date,options={})

# Output an easily styleable key-value pair
info_pair(label, value)  

# Give this helper an array, and get back a string of <li> elements. 
# The first item gets a class of first and the last, well.. last. 
# This makes it easier to apply CSS styles to lists, be they ordered or unordered.
# http://zeke.tumblr.com/post/98025647/a-nice-little-view-helper-for-generating-list-items
convert_to_list_items(items)

# This works just like link_to, but with one difference..
# If the link is to the current page, a class of 'active' is added
link(name, options={}, html_options={})

# Absolute path to an image
image_url(source)

# e.g. http://localhost:3000, or https://productionserver.com
base_url

# Generate a list of column name-value pairs for an AR object
list_model_columns(obj)
