ViewComponent supports all actively supported versions of Ruby (3.0+) and Ruby on Rails (6.1+) and is tested against a combination of these versions of Ruby on Rails.
While EOL (end-of-life) versions of Ruby and Ruby on Rails may still work with ViewComponent, they’re not actively supported and no longer tested. We will still accept patches on a case-by-case basis to support older Ruby & Rails versions based on the complexity and maintenance burden. Please open an issue before submitting such a Pull Request.
ViewComponent is tested against ERB, Haml, and Slim, but it should support most Rails template handlers.
To avoid conflicts between ViewComponent and other gems that also monkey patch the
render method, it’s possible to configure ViewComponent to not include the render monkey patch:
config.view_component.render_monkey_patch_enabled = false # defaults to true
With the monkey patch disabled, use
<%= render_component Component.new(message: "bar") %>
rich_text_area from ActionText in a ViewComponent will result in this error:
undefined method "rich_text_area_tag"
This is due to ViewComponent not having access to the helpers it needs via ActionText. As a workaround, add the following to your component (or base component):
delegate :rich_text_area_tag, to: :helpers
