Module: Decidim::ContentProcessor

Extended by:
ActionView::Helpers::SanitizeHelper, ActionView::Helpers::TagHelper, ActionView::Helpers::TextHelper
Defined in:
decidim-core/lib/decidim/content_processor.rb

Overview

This module contains all logic related to decidim's ability for process a content. Their main job is to parse or render a content calling all the registered processors in the Decidim.content_processors config.

Note that to render a content this must have been parsed before.

When creating a new processor, the both sides must be declared: parser and renderer e.g. If we are creating a processor to parse and render user mentions, we can call this the `user` processor, so we will declare the parser and renderer classes like that:

Decidim::ContentParsers::UserParser
Decidim::ContentRenderers::UserRenderer

and register it in an initializer, so it is executed:

Decidim.content_processors += [:user]

If for some reason you only want to do something in one of the both sides, please, also declare the other side making it “transparent” (declaring the class and leaving it empty).

Examples:

How to parse a content

parsed = Decidim::ContentProcessor.parse(content, context)
parsed.rewrite # contains rewritten content
parsed. # contains the merged metadata of all parsers

How to render a content (must have been parsed before)

rendered = Decidim::ContentProcessor.render(content)
puts rendered

Class Method Details

.parse(content, context) ⇒ Result

This calls all registered processors one after the other and collects the metadata for each one and the resulting modified content

Parameters:

  • content (String)

    already rewritten content or regular content

  • context (Hash)

    with information to inject to the parsers as context

Returns:

  • (Result)

    a Result object with the content rewritten and the metadata

def self.parse(content, context)
  Decidim.content_processors.each_with_object(Result.new(content, {})) do |type, result|
    parse_with_processor(type, result, context)
  end
end

.parse_with_processor(type, content, context) ⇒ Result

Public: Calls the specified processors to process the given content with it. For example, to convert hashtags to its Global ID representation.

Parameters:

  • type (String)

    the name of the processor to use.

  • content (String)

    already rewritten content or regular content

  • context (Hash)

    with information to inject to the parsers as context

Returns:

  • (Result)

    a Result object with the content rewritten and the metadata

    result.rewrite.each do |key, value|
      child_result = Result.new(value, {})
      child_result = parse_with_processor(type, child_result, context)

      result.rewrite.update(key => child_result.rewrite)
      result..update(child_result.)

.parser_klass(type) ⇒ String

This method is part of a private API. You should avoid using this method if possible, as it may be removed or be changed in the future.

Guess the class name of the parser for a processor represented by the given symbol

Returns:

  • (String)

    the content parser class name

end

.render(content, wrapper_tag = "p", options = {}) ⇒ String

This calls all registered processors one after the other and returns the processed content ready to display.

Parameters:

  • content (String)

    with the content to be rendered.

  • wrapper_tag (String) (defaults to: "p")

    with the HTML tag to wrap the content.

  • options (Hash) (defaults to: {})

    with options to pass to the renderer.

Returns:

  • (String)

    the content processed and ready to display (it is expected to include HTML)

  simple_format(
    render_without_format(content, options),
    {},
    wrapper_tag: wrapper_tag
  )
end

.render_without_format(content, options = {}) ⇒ String

This calls all registered processors one after the other and returns the processed content ready to display without wrapping the content in HTML.

Parameters:

  • content (String)

    with the content to be rendered.

  • options (Hash) (defaults to: {})

    with options to pass to the renderer.

Returns:

  • (String)

    the content processed and ready to display.

.renderer_klass(type) ⇒ String

This method is part of a private API. You should avoid using this method if possible, as it may be removed or be changed in the future.

Guess the class name of the renderer for a processor represented by the given symbol

Returns:

  • (String)

    the content renderer class name

end

.sanitize(text, options = {}) ⇒ String

This method overwrites the views `sanitize` method. This is required to ensure the content does not include any weird HTML that could harm the end user.

Returns:

  • (String)

    sanitized content.
