simple_format(text, html_options={}, options={}) public

Returns text transformed into HTML using simple formatting rules. Two or more consecutive newlines(\n\n) are considered as a paragraph and wrapped in <p> tags. One newline (\n) is considered as a linebreak and a <br /> tag is appended. This method does not remove the newlines from the text.

You can pass any HTML attributes into html_options. These will be added to all created paragraphs.


  my_text = "Here is some basic text...\n...with a line break."

  # => "<p>Here is some basic text...\n<br />...with a line break.</p>"

  more_text = "We want to put a paragraph...\n\n...right there."

  # => "<p>We want to put a paragraph...</p>\n\n<p>...right there.</p>"

  simple_format("Look ma! A class!", :class => 'description')
  # => "<p class='description'>Look ma! A class!</p>"
