Amrita2 1.9.6


#1

Amrita2 is a XML/HTML template library for Ruby. I released a new
version 1.9.6 as BETA1 for 2.0. Get it from

http://amrita2.rubyforge.org/

I reduced undocumented features and refactored much to prepare the
comming stable release. And …

  • added gemspec and make it Rails plugin
  • simplified the ERB processing feature
  • new feature for setting two attributes (like class=‘odd’ and
    class=‘even’) alternately

Now Amrita2 template can contain ERB source in it.

   <table border='1'>
     <tr><th>name</th><th>author</th></tr>
     <tr id='languages'>
       <td><![CDATA[
          <a href='<%= $_.url %>'><%= $_.name %></a>
       ]]></td>
       <td id='creator'></td>
     </tr>
   </table>

CDATA in

element will be evaluated as many times as number of
‘languages’ data. And each item will be set to ‘$_’ before ERB
evaluating. See this page for detail.

How to use Amrita2 with Ruby On Rails
http://amrita2.rubyforge.org/Rails.html

And this method setup Template to insert two attributes alternately.

def languages_setup_template(template)
tmpl = Amrita2::TemplateText.new(template)
tmpl.use_erb(binding)
tmpl.element_option[:languages] = { :mv_attr=> { :class=>%w(odd
even)
} }
tmpl
end

This template produces output like this.

<a href='http://www.perl.com/' >perl Larry Wall
<a href='http://www.python.org/' >python Guido van Rossum

Great. Any chance you could release Amrita as a gem?

Thanks,

I have uploaded gem of Amrita2 to rubyforge. So, you can install
Amrita2 by gem now. Just type

gem install amrita2

I will upload gem of Amrita 1.0.X with next release of Amrita2.
