Hobo Paperclip

This is a plugin for Hobo. This is a direct port of paperclip_with_hobo plugin to a GEM.

This plugin wraps paperclip for Hobo.

It adds two small things:

  • Automatically declares the fields for you, so you can just add

     has_attached_file :photo

    to your model, and then run the migration generator. All options are automatically passed on to paperclip’s has_attached_file.

  • Declares an input field

     <def tag="input" for="Paperclip::Attachment">
       <%= file_field_tag param_name_for_this, attributes %>

    (to get this, you need <include gem='hobo_paperclip'/> in front_site.dryml)


Paperclip is required so add it to your gemfile if you don’t have it alread

gem 'paperclip'

Add hobo_paperclip to your gemfile

gem 'hobo_paperclip', :git => "git://github.com/Hobo/hobo_paperclip.git", :branch => "master"

Update your bundle:

bundle install

Include the hobo_paperclip taglib in front_site.dryml

<include gem='hobo_paperclip'/>

Add paperclip to one of your models:

has_attached_file :photo

Your default form for the model will now include the four attributes added by has_attached_file. To actually allow uploading, you will need to manually add the attachment field (photo in the above example) to your form, and don’t forget to add the multipart attribute:

<extend tag="form" for="MyModel">
  <old-form merge multipart>
    <field-list: fields="photo, other-fields, ..."/>
