[ANN] link_to_magic
Published almost 7 years ago

Sorry for the lame name. I was gonna name it link_to_sexy initially, but changed my mind at the last moment ;-)

This plugin is inspired from Josh Peek’s stringgable_shortcuts & Geoff Buesing’s patch

To install :

script/plugin install http://linktomagic.googlecode.com/svn/link_to_magic/

script/plugin install http://linktomagic.googlecode.com/svn/link_to_magic/

To use :

1.

<%= link_to @person %>

<%= link_to @person %>

This is short for doing <%= link_to h(@person.name), @person %>_. Here, a littile bit of ActiveRecord::Base.tos magic is involved too. Check out this pastie to understand what/how it does this.

2.

<%= link_to_something @person %>

<%= link_to_something @person %>

This is short for doing <%= link_to h(@person.something), @person %>.

Comments/suggestions welcome!
