Today, we released a new version of Padrino bringing us to 0.9.27. This release is only a week after our last hotfix release because we wanted to keep up the speed as we approach our 0.10.0 release that will coincide with the Sinatra 1.3 release.
We have also significantly improved our release processes as we approach 1.0 and now the continuous integration measures we put in place run all of our tests on every ruby version, a set of elaborate integration tests as well as full web benchmarks to measure our requests per second versus other ruby frameworks.
This release is primarily compatibility and bug fixes but also contains a few new features involving project-wide settings, reverse route recognition, and offline and test generation updates. Details of the features and fixes are below.
If you want to hear more about Padrino, a podcast was recently released on Rubiverse.
In this release, we have added the notion of ‘project’ settings that are inherited by every Padrino application within the project. This can be used to set any properties but is particularly useful for sharing sessions across your apps. These project-wide settings are intended to live in
config/apps.rb and are generated in every new application.
# config/apps.rb # Set the global project settings for your apps. # These settings are inherited by your subapps. # You can override these settings in each of your sub apps. Padrino.configure_apps do enable :sessions set :foo, "bar" end
Reverse Route Recognition
We have occasionally had the need to access the current route from within a template in order to create links or determine the current page.
Given we have a route such as
# controllers.rb controller :some do get :other, :map => "/custom/url/with-:foo" do; end end
We have added the ability to recognize a url and retrieve the route:
# my_view.haml url(:some, :other, :foo => :bar) # => /custom/url/with-bar
We have also added the ability to get the current page:
# in a path like /posts/?search=bar&name=foo = link_to "Sort by Name", current_path("sort" => :name) = link_to "Sort by Date", current_path("sort" => :date)
