options[:src] in image_tag

Reported by skeller1 | February 2nd, 2011 @ 11:27 AM

I want create an embedded image_tag helper to embedd images in html view. (

There's already an options[:src] in the image_tag method.

Change this line in image_tag

src = options[:src] = path_to_image(source)


src = options[:src] ||= path_to_image(source)

would give developers full control about the src attribute in an own view_helper.

def my_helper_tag(bla, options={})

set src

options[:src] = "do my work here"

call image_tag

image_tag "", options


So the developer is able to use the other options like :width, :heihgt ...

An other possibility would be an embedded_image_tag with base64
