Some problems with integrating XUL into Rails


#1

Dear Friends,

I started integrating XUL into Rails, however, I have some problems.

The first problem is that I can open local XUL files with Firefox, but
cannot open them through Rails/Webrick, Firefox says it does not
recognize
what it is.

I’ve read the cookbookxul experiment and I know I have to play around
with
content-type,
but a contoller action like

def run_xul
response.headers[“content-type”]=“application/vnd.mozilla.xul+xml”
render_text ’’
end

still does not work.

I also added the meta-http content-type tag to the xul file, but does
not
help also.

Do yo have any ideas?

Also, where should I look around in the complex directory tree of Rails
if I
want to make .rxul work like .rhtml and .rjs?

Thanks,

Miklos

Hi !

2006/6/10, Miklos H. removed_email_address@domain.invalid:

def run_xul

response.headers[“content-type”]=“application/vnd.mozilla.xul+xml”
render_text ’’
end

What you’re doing here is telling Firefox to open a local file.
Instead, use #send_file to send the file with the correct Content-Type
to Firefox. That should do it.

Bye !
