Update on daru-view:
Formatters in GoogleCharts (PR #110):
The Google Visualization API provides formatters that can be used to reformat data in a visualization.
For more details, visit this page.
Added a method to load dependent scripts for multiple adapters (PR #107):
Have a look at these examples.
Rake Task to add new adapter templates (PR #112):
Added a rake task to generate the sample template for the adapter.
Rename Daru::DataTables::DataTable to Daru::View::DataTable (PR #114 in daru-view, PR in daru-data_tables):
As daru-data_tables is a plugin gem for daru-view, it needs to be initialized in a different way. Now, it can be instantiated as
Reduce a bunch of lines due to JS files in source HTML in rails (PR #115 in daru-view, PR #23 in daru-data_tables):
This aims to remove a bunch of lines that occur in the head tag in rails. In rails, the one line of code we actually need to write in
daru-view is for a class called
Engine, this is going to inherit from
Rails::Engine, and this is more or less saying that when rails loads this gem, it’s going to look for this Engine class, and if it’s defined, it’s going to treat this gem’s directory structure a little bit differently. It’s going to work sort of like your rails application, almost as if you had a rails app inside of a rails app.
//= require highcharts/highcharts
//= require highcharts/highcharts-more
//= require highcharts/map
//= require jquery-latest.min
//= require jquery.dataTables
and CSS files can be included as:
*= require jquery.dataTables
Include the below line in the head of the layout file:
<%= stylesheet_link_tag "application" %>
Note: The previous method to use
<%=raw Daru::View.dependent_script(:highcharts) %> will also work.
Right now this has only been done for rails. Other web frameworks do not provide much flexibility and there are fewer resources available to search. I am trying to reduce lines in Sinatra and nanoc too but still facing many difficulties. Loading JS and CSS files in the app (by keeping these files in the app) can be done, but loading these files from daru-view in the sinatra/nanoc/other frameworks is not an easy task. I have also opened this issue in the sinatra repo.
Improved Code Quality (PR #116, PR #76, PR #73, PR #74):
