Ruby on Rails - navigation tree

Hi, folks,

I am trying to build a beautiful navigation tree, to help users browse
through an inherently hierarchical website. Looking for the
appropriate control, I chose the yui treeview (javascript). There is a
site describing how to adjust it to Ruby on Rails
(http://sonjayatandon.com/07-2006/how-to-get-rails-and-the-yahoo-user-interface-yui-to-talk-part-1/
etc.).
I also want to add a custom right-click context menu
(http://developer.yahoo.com/yui/examples/menu/treeviewcontextmenu.html).
I followed the directions, and they work OK, however, it does not
escape my attention that I am using Ruby to hardcode javascript. Is
there another, more elegant, way to do this?

Thanks,
Xenia , new to Ruby and Rails

You could include it as a separate .js file

Note also that the rails group might be more helpful since some of us on
this list don’t use rails as often as they.
