Great article! I’m currently working on a project that needs some inline editing – however, there’s an additional kicker in that some editables are not text-only. Within the rails app, the editor needs to support custom “read” and “write” partials to dump into the editor form.
I’ve implimented it using a regex to properly escape any quotes in the partials and dumping them into the onclick call on the editable element.Early days yet but so far it looks like this:
couple of points:-1. I’m using position: absolute because some editable elements are in small screen areas that will not contain a form in a presentable manner.2. I’m fading down the opacity on the edited element for additional feedback.
Hope that’s of use to someone out there. Keep up the great work with this site.
