@_rails_html_safe clutters up YAML

Reported by David James | December 7th, 2009 @ 04:14 PM

I'm writing an HTML importer in Ruby that is not related to Rails.

One of my dependencies includes ActiveSupport 2.3.5. It sets @_rails_html_safe to false, which clutters up some YAML files i'm exporting.

My goal is to have clean YAML, so my workaround is to use remove_instance_variable:

    On one hand, I understand that if I include ActiveSupport, then I am going to get all the monkey patching that comes with it. On another hand, adding instance variables to String seems a bit intrusive. Is there another way that ActiveSupport could do this? Or is there a better workaround from my perspective?

    The same problem with write_fragment to memcached from action and read it from nginx/memcached: I" and :@_rails_html_safeF around html.

    Sorry, my problem can be fixed by adding :raw => true to write_fragment.

    david, how does that monkey-patch work? i can't find any documentation for Utility.raw_string anywhere (moreover, i can't find any documentation for the module Utility)

    Lenary: you mean plain_string (not raw_string) from -- it is not a monkey patch; it is just a convenience method. Use it like this: Utility.plain_string(str)

    yeah, but is that called automatically from within YAML, or do you call it yourself?
