Using ActionText

Super has some basic support for editing and viewing ActionText. Since ActionText only works with Webpacker, you’ll have to set up Webpacker for your application. (You don’t have to configure Super to not use Sprockets.)

Once you’ve set that up, ActionText should be relatively simple. The following command will copy over the necessary JS and CSS into your application:

bundle exec rails generate super:action_text

As an example, let’s say we’re making admin pages for a blog. We’ll keep this example simple and work with a Post model with just a #title column and a rich text #content field.

class Post < ApplicationRecord
  has_rich_text :content
end

We’ll need to configure the #form_schema and #display_schema methods.

class Controls < Super::Controls
  # ...

  def form_schema(action:)
    Super::Form.new do |fields, type|
      fields[:title] = type.text
      fields[:content] = type.rich_text_area
    end
  end

  def display_schema(action:)
    Super::Display.new do |fields, type|
      fields[:title] = type.text
      fields[:content] = type.rich_text
    end
  end
end
