Good framework to manage help content in rails App

0 votes
31 views

Our application has a bunch of help content(user guides) that is scattered and messy. Some is in PDFs, some is written directly in views, some is in table columns, etc.

I'm trying to find a good way to organize and manage it all from within the app, and wanted to ask the community what solutions are already out there.

My goal would be to accomplish the following:
* An easy way for editors to CRUD help content for each page of the app by browsing to that page and using and 'edit help' button.
* An easy way to organize all these pages into a cohesive and comprehensive help document for the entire site. So ideally the help content for each page would fit into a structure of chapters and sub-chapters, and the entire document could be printed as a guide.
* A way to manage tooltips (javascript popups) within this larger help context. So the help editor would also provide for some id reference that i can then pull for tooltip content for a certain widget.

I am trying to develop an app to manage media files I have a folder with pictures, audio and video files.

I am using Dir.glob to list the directory in my controller and in my views I am using match with regular expressions to test if the file ends in mp3 jpg mp4 3gp wav etc ... the code I wrote seems to almost work The variable @file is passed on from the controller and here is my view.

Is this a sensible way of trying to do this?

<% if @file.match("mp4") %>
 <video width="320" height="240" controls>
  <source src= <%= @file %> type="video/mp4">
 </video> 
<% elsif @file.match("mp3") %>
 <audio controls preload="auto">
  <source src = <%= @file %> >
 </audio>
<% elsif @file.match("jpg") %>
 <img src= "<%= @file %>">
<% end %>

What is the best method to manage image uploads in Rails? Is there a tool that allows auto-resizing upon image upload based on predefined dimensions? Moreover, is there any tool available that makes it possible to render / regenerate the same originally uploaded image using alternative view based styles, e.g. thumbs, 320x200 or 640x480 etc..?

Something like x.instance_variables.each.... { |i} .... }

Thought to be a one liner. I can't figure out how to apply strip() to each variable, since instance_variable_get returns the value. I really want something I can apply .strip! to....

I have a table with several thousand records in it. They take a long time to load and are essentially useless presented altogether.. I'd like present the user a search form to select a limited subset of records for display in the index function.
