Module: Haml::Filters::Base

Included in:
Cdata, Css, Escaped, Javascript, Plain, Preserve, Ruby
Defined in:
lib/haml/filters.rb

Overview

The base module for Haml filters. User-defined filters should be modules including this module. The name of the filter is taken by downcasing the module name. For instance, if the module is named FooBar, the filter will be :foobar.

A user-defined filter should override either #render or #compile. #render is the most common. It takes a string, the filter source, and returns another string, the result of the filter. For example, the following will define a filter named :sass:

module Haml::Filters::Sass
  include Haml::Filters::Base

  def render(text)
    ::Sass::Engine.new(text).render
  end
end

For details on overriding #compile, see its documentation.

Note that filters overriding #render automatically support #{} for interpolating Ruby code. Those overriding #compile will need to add such support manually if it’s desired.

+ included(base)

This method is automatically called when Haml::Filters::Base is included in a module. It automatically defines a filter with the downcased name of that module. For example, if the module is named FooBar, the filter will be :foobar.

Parameters:

  • base (Module, Class)

    The module that this is included in

Instance Method Details

- compile(compiler, text)

This should be overridden when a filter needs to have access to the Haml evaluation context. Rather than applying a filter to a string at compile-time, #compile uses the Compiler instance to compile the string to Ruby code that will be executed in the context of the active Haml template.

Warning: the Compiler interface is neither well-documented nor guaranteed to be stable. If you want to make use of it, you’ll probably need to look at the source code and should test your filter when upgrading to new Haml versions.

Parameters:

  • compiler (Haml::Compiler)

    The compiler instance

  • text (String)

    The text of the filter

Raises:

def compile(compiler, text)
  filter = self
  compiler.instance_eval do
    if contains_interpolation?(text)

      # We need to add a newline at the beginning to get the
      # filter lines to line up (since the Haml filter contains
      # a line that doesn't show up in the source, namely the
      # filter name). Then we need to escape the trailing
      # newline so that the whole filter block doesn't take up
      # too many.

- internal_compile(*args)

Same as #compile, but requires the necessary files first. This is used by Engine and is not intended to be overridden or used elsewhere.

- (String) render(text)

Takes the source text that should be passed to the filter and returns the result of running the filter on that string.

This should be overridden in most individual filter modules to render text with the given filter. If #compile is overridden, however, #render doesn’t need to be.

Parameters:

  • text (String)

    The source text for the filter to process

Returns:

  • (String)

    The filtered result

Raises:

def render(text)
  raise Error.new("#{self.inspect}#render not defined!")
end

- (String) render_with_options(text, options)

Same as #render, but takes a Engine options hash as well. It’s only safe to rely on options made available in Engine#options_for_buffer.

Parameters:

  • text (String)

    The source text for the filter to process

Returns:

  • (String)

    The filtered result

Raises:
