Solidus Static Content

CircleCI

A fork of the Spree extension for compatibility with Solidus.

Good, clean content management of pages for Solidus. You can use it to:

  • Add and manage static pages such as an About page.
  • Show a static page instead of existing dynamic pages such as the home page, products pages, and taxon pages.

Installation

Add solidus_static_content to your Gemfile:

gem 'solidus_static_content'

Bundle your dependencies and run the installation generator:

bundle
bundle exec rails g solidus_static_content:install

Usage

Using the 'Pages' option in the admin tab, you can add static pages to your Solidus store. The page content can be pulled directly from the database, be a separate layout file or be rendered as a partial.

In the admin tab, use the 'New page' option to create a new static page.

The title, slug, body, and meta fields will replace their respective page elements on load. The title, slug and body element are all required fields.

Body text provided without a layout/partial being specified will be loaded in the spree_application layout after it is pulled from the database.

Layout and partial rendering

To render an entire page without the spree_application layout, specify a relative path to the layout file (e.g. spree/layouts/layout_file_name). Note that the name of this file will not be prefixed with an underscore as it is a layout, not a partial.

To render a partial, specify the path in the layout file name and check the 'Render layout as partial' option. The path specified in the layout area will not have an underscore, but it will be required in the filename.

Also note the availability of the render_snippet helper which finds a page by its slug and renders the raw page body anywhere in your view.

Options

Use the 'Show in' checkboxes to specify whether to display the page links in the header, footer or sidebar. The position setting alters the order in which they appear.

Finally, toggle the visibility using the 'Visible' checkbox. If it is unchecked, the page will not be available.

Development

Testing the extension

First bundle your dependencies, then run bin/rake. bin/rake will default to building the dummy app if it does not exist, then it will run specs. The dummy app can be regenerated by using bin/rake extension:test_app.

bundle
bin/rake

To run Rubocop static code analysis run

bundle exec rubocop

When testing your application's integration with this extension you may use its factories. Simply add this require statement to your spec_helper:

require 'solidus_static_content/factories'

Running the sandbox

To run this extension in a sandboxed Solidus application, you can run bin/sandbox. The path for the sandbox app is ./sandbox and bin/rails will forward any Rails commands to sandbox/bin/rails.

Here's an example:

$ bin/rails server
=> Booting Puma
=> Rails 6.0.2.1 application starting in development
* Listening on tcp://127.0.0.1:3000
Use Ctrl-C to stop

Releasing new versions

Your new extension version can be released using gem-release like this:

bundle exec gem bump -v VERSION --tag --push --remote upstream && gem release
