Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'breadcrumble'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install breadcrumble

Usage

Controller

In your controller, call add_breadcrumb to push a new crumb on the breadcrumb stack.

class SampleController

  add_breadcrumb("home", home_url)
  add_breadcrumb(-> context { context.title }, -> context { context.sample_path })

  def index
    add_breadcrumb("index", controller: 'sample', action: 'index')
    add_breadcrumb("show", show_path(123))
    add_breadcrumbs(["book", "/book"], ["page", "/book/page"])
  end

end

Second arugment passed url_for method for convenient use, except specify nil.

You can use Proc object for arguments, the library calls proc with controller context as argument.

If you would like to use multiple breadcrumb, call add_breadcrumb_to method with breadcrumb trail index.

class SampleController

  add_breadcrumb_to("level 1", "level 1 url", 0) # same as -> add_breadcrumb("level 1", "level 1 url")
  add_breadcrumb_to("level 2", "level 2 url", 1)

  def index
    add_breadcrumb_to("level 1 second item", "level 1 second url", 0)
    add_breadcrumb_to("level 2 second item", "level 2 second url", 1)
end

View

In your view, you can render the breadcrumb navigation with the render_breadcrumbs helper.

<body>
  <%= render_breadcrumbs %>
</body>

You can render multiple breadcrumb by render_breadcrumb_trails helper.

<body>
  <%= render_breadcrumb_trails %>
</body>

Customizing layout

Breadcrumble generates default partial template for your app.

Generate template. Run the follwoing.

$ rails g breadcrumble:views

then edit the partials in your app's app/views/breadcrumble/ directory.

Theme

You can choose template themes in a single application. Create a directory with theme name in your app's app/views/breadcrumble/ and create custom template files.

$ rails g breadcrumble:views
$ cd app/views/breadcrumble
$ mkdir my_custom_theme
$ cp _*.erb my_custom_theme/

And then calling render_breadcrumbs or render_breadcrumb_trails method with theme option.

<%= render_breadcrumbs(theme: 'my_custom_theme') %>
<%= render_breadcrumb_trails(theme: 'my_custom_theme') %>
