Views: Share Code
In our settings (
apps/web/application.rb), there is a code block that allows to share the code for all the views of our application.
When a view includes the
Web::View module, that block code is yielded within the context of that class.
This is heavily inspired by Ruby Module and its
Imagine we have an application that only renders JSON. For each view we should specify the handled format. This can be tedious to do by hand, but we can easily DRY our code.
We craft a module in
# apps/web/views/accept_json.rb module Web module Views module AcceptJson def self.included(view) view.class_eval do format :json end end end end end
Then we can load the file and include the module in all the views of our application, using view.prepare.
# apps/web/application.rb require_relative './views/accept_json' module Web class Application < Hanami::Application configure do # ... view.prepare do include Web::Views::AcceptJson end end end end
Code included via
prepare is available for ALL the views of an application.
