Padrino 0.10.7 - Reloader, JRuby, Helpers and Other Bug Fixes

Several months ago, Padrino 0.10.6 was released which included HTML5 support, improved stability and compatibility patches. Today after some unfortunate delays, we are releasing Padrino 0.10.7 which is a major bug fix and compatibility release. We investigated all major issues reported since the release of 0.10.6 and have addressed the most important issues including renewed JRuby support, a better reloader, activesupport loading, and many other improvements.

Padrino 0.10.6 - ActiveSupport 3.2, MiniRecord, HTML5 Helpers and bug fixes

For the last few months, our team has been quite busy so there has been less activity then usual on the Padrino codebase. The other reason for this is that as we have continued to stabilize the scope and the core code, there has been less need for urgent changes. Our core team uses Padrino for most of our projects and Padrino continues to serve as a stable foundation for our applications.

Still, with the official release of ActiveSupport 3.2, several contributions to our codebase and some useful bug fixes, we figured the time had come for a new release. Today, we are announcing the release of Padrino 0.10.6 with ActiveSupport 3.2 compatibility, MiniRecord generator support, HTML5 Helpers, along with many compatibility upgrades and bug fixes. Full details for this release are below.

ActiveRecord and ActiveSupport 3.2 Upgrade

We have upgraded Padrino to use ActiveSupport 3.2 and to enable support for ActiveRecord 3.2. We believe that Padrino should support the latest version of these components as they become officially available. There shouldn't be any breaking changes between ActiveRecord 3.1 and the new version release.

MiniRecord Generators

In this release, we have added generators for the excellent MiniRecord gem created by Padrino core team member DAddYE. MiniRecord is a gem that makes working with ActiveRecord much easier including automatic migrations and schema definitions in the model themselves. Commit here.

HTML 5 Helpers

Cirex contributed many useful HTML5 Helper changes including support for number_field, telephone_field, email_field, search_field, and url_field! He also cleaned up the apis for tag and content_tag for better HTML5 support. The changes shouldn't break existing applications.

  • Helpers for tag and content_tag are now HTML5 friendly: commit
  • Support HTML5 based tags for helpers: commit
  • Added support for a few of the new HTML 5 form inputs: commit

Thanks to Cirex for putting these together! Check out the Application Helpers guide for details about these HTML5 inputs.

In addition fnordfish added support for hash options for tags. For instance:

tag(:div, :data => {:dojo => {:type => 'dijit.form.TextBox', :props => 'readOnly: true'}})

Now properly sets up the data-dojo-type and the data-dojo-props attributes on a tag. Thanks to fnordfish: commit, commit


One of our core team members, skade has introduced changes to the logger to allow for custom loggers in a much easier way! Now, you can use a custom logger simply by re-assigning the logger to your own logging instance:

# app/app.rb
Padrino.logger =
Padrino.logger.debug("Hooray, a colorized Lumberjack logger!")

By default the Padrino logger should work as expected. Commit here, here.
