Routing_navigator plugin problems

Has anyone got this working under Rails 2.0.2? I get

undefined method `template_root=’ for RoutingNavigatorController:Class

When I try and use it. I discovered a previous post on the subject but
the advice given there (substitute view_paths for template_root) does
not work for me.

I had the same problem and fixed it.

The problem is the way the system trys to change the path of the
template root so it can include it’s own templates and partials.

My fix is quick and dirty because I need it working now and elegance
is not on my highest priority list… but here is my fix.

class RoutingNavigatorController < ActionController::Base
routing_navigator :off if respond_to? :routing_navigator

self.view_paths << File.join(RAILS_ROOT, 'vendor/plugins/

routing_navigator/views’)

#for access by the model
def self.view_path
File.join(RAILS_ROOT, ‘vendor/plugins/routing_navigator/views’)
end

def index
#manually added
self.view_paths << File.join(RAILS_ROOT, ‘vendor/plugins/
routing_navigator/views’)
@filter = YAML.load(params[:filter].to_s).symbolize_keys rescue
nil
end

def recognize_url
render :text
=>
::ActionController::Routing::Routes.recognize_path(params[:path]).inspect,
:layout
=> false
end

def generate_route
render :text
=>
::ActionController::Routing::Routes.generate(YAML.load(params[:options]).symbolize_keys).inspect,
:layout
=> false
end
end

#in routing_navigator.rb ~line 32
ActionController::Base.class_eval do
class_inheritable_reader :routing_navigator_options
after_filter :append_routing_navigator if RAILS_ENV == ‘development’

Set what actions the routing navigator after filter is

def self.routing_navigator(options = {})
options = { options => true } if [:off, :on].include?(options)
write_inheritable_hash :routing_navigator_options, options
end

protected
def append_routing_navigator
options = routing_navigator_options || {:off => true}
# yuck!
return if request.xhr? || options[:off] || (!
params[:format].blank? && params[:format] != ‘html’) || (response.body
=~ /</body/).nil? ||
(options[:only] && !
[options[:only]].flatten.collect(&:to_s).include?(action_name)) ||
(options[:except] &&
[options[:except]].flatten.collect(&:to_s).include?(action_name))
# yuck!
# old_template_root = @template.view_paths
begin
@template.view_paths << RoutingNavigatorController.view_path
response.body.gsub!(/</body/, @template.render(:partial =>
‘routing_navigator/navigator’) + ‘</body’)
ensure
@template.view_paths = old_template_root
end
end
end

Try that and it should work.

I fixed the problem as well, although my solution was even more blunt
force than yours. I simply removed the problematic
template_root/views_path calls from the plugin and copied the
views/routing_navigator directory to app/views.

I have submitted a patch for this plugin to the maintainer, at his
request, but I have not received any acknowledgement and it has not been
committed.
