Hobo JQuery

This is a simple Rails plugin that works with Hobo.

It adds a bunch of tags to Hobo that instantiate various JQuery UI widgets.

Installing

Install with

ruby script/plugin install git://github.com/bryanlarsen/hobo-jquery.git

Link jQuery, jQuery-UI, and hobo-jQuery assets into your public directory:

rake hobo_jquery:link_jquery
rake hobo_jquery:link_assets

If you’re on Windows, you can use the install_jquery and update_assets tasks instead.

To use, you need to include hobo-jquery and add the assets to your page. In your application.dryml:

<include src="hobo-jquery" plugin="hobo-jquery" />

<extend tag="page">
  <old-page merge>
    <custom-scripts:>
      <hjq-assets/>
    </custom-scripts>
  </old-page>
</extend>

To install local documentation:

git submodule update --init

Notes

Hobo Jquery calls jQuery.noConflict() to avoid conflicts with prototype. $ is still bound to prototype.js. To use jQuery, use jQuery instead of $.
