[ANN] Dojo Toolbocks - v1.0.0

= Dojo_Toolbocks

The Dojo Toolbocks is a superstar plugin (engine) that provides the
functionality to include any of the Dojo Toolkit libraries into your
Ruby on Rails application.

==Dependencies

The dependencies are automatically loaded into your application.

For reference they are:

  • Dojo Toolkit v0.4
  • Engines v1.2
  • Rails v1.2.x

==Installation

  1. script/plugin install dojo_toolbocks

a) If you don’t already have engines installed and configured, then
you will need to modify the /config/environment.rb file. After the
“Rails::Initializer.run” add the following line:

config.plugins = [“engines”, “*”]

  1. Add the following line to the main template
    (/app/views/layouts/application.rhtml) between the opening and closing
tags. Alternatively, you can add it to each individual template as needed.

<%= javascript_include_tag ‘dojo’, :plugin => ‘dojo_toolbocks’ %>

  1. Depending on what libraries you need for the functionality you
    desire, you can use the dojo_require method either as a tag, or as a
    block as shown in a) and b). This method is to be called within the
tag. See ==Usage for examples.

==Usage

Here is the full rhtml template for using the Dojo
Toolbocks::Slideshow, with debugging enabled.

Dojo Toolbocks: Slideshow Demo <%= dojo_config(:debug => true) %> <%= javascript_include_tag 'dojo', :plugin => 'dojo_toolbocks' %> <%= dojo_require ({:script_tag => true}, "dojo.widget.*", "dojo.widget.SlideShow") %> "dojo_toolbocks") }.join(';') %>" transitionInterval="700" delay="7000" src="<%= image_path('demos/widget/slideshow/1.jpg', :plugin => 'dojo_toolbocks') %>" imgWidth="400" imgHeight="300" />

a) Debugging

<%= dojo_config(:debug => true) %>

b) Library Inclusion: Tag Style

<%= dojo_require ({:script_tag => true}, “dojo.widget.", "dojo.lang.”)
%>

c) Library Inclusion: Block Style

<% dojo_require ({:script_tag => true}, “dojo.widget.", "dojo.lang.”)
do %>
function somethingUseful(todo) {
// this method does something useful, and is wrapped in the same
script tag as the library includes
}
<% end %>
