Allows render widgets in any page content

Requirements

Yii 1.1 or above

Usage

Insert list of allowed widgets into configuration file parameter:

return array(
    // ...
    'params'=>array(
         // ...
        'runtimeWidgets'=>array(
            'ShareWidget',
            'Comments',
            'blog.wigets.LastPostsWidget',
        }
    }
}

Create widgets

class LastPostsWidget extends CWidget
{
    public $tpl='default';
    public $limit=3;

    public function run()
    {
        $posts = Post::model()->published()->last($this->limit)->findAll();
        $this->render('LastPosts/' . $this->tpl, array(
            'posts'=>$posts,
        ));
    }
}

Attach behavior to your main controller:

class Controller extends CController
{
    public function behaviors()
    {
        return array(
            'InlineWidgetsBehavior'=>array(
                'class'=>'application.components.DInlineWidgetsBehavior',
                'location'=>'application.components.widgets', // default path (optional)               
                'widgets'=>Yii::app()->params['runtimeWidgets'],
                'startBlock'=> '{{w:',
                'endBlock'=> '}}',
             ),
        );
    }
}

Use specific templates (like BBCodes) in your pages, posts and other dinamic content and call Controller::decodeWidgets method for parse model content and rendering widgets in your views:

<?php $model->text = '
    <h2>Lorem ipsum</h2>

    <h2>Latest posts</h2>
    <p>{{w:LastPostsWidget}}</p>

    <h2>Latest posts (with parameters)</h2>
    <p>{{w:LastPostsWidget|limit=5}}</p>

    <h2>Latest posts (with inner caching)</h2>    
    <p>{{w:LastPostsWidget|limit=5;tpl=small;cache=300}}</p>

    <p>{{w:youtube|id=qwer12345}}</p>
    <p>{{w:flash|file=/banners/banner1.swf;w=320;h=240}}</p>
    <p>{{w:gallery|id=holiday2012}}</p>
    <p>{{w:submenu|parent=services}}</p>

    <p>Dolor...</p>
'; ?>

<h1><?php echo CHtml::encode($model->title); ?></h1>
<?php echo $this->decodeWidgets($model->text); ?>
