The Grails Retina Tag plugin adds retina tag image support to the asset pipeline <asset:image/> taglib. RetinaTag resolves this by extending <asset:image/> to create a hidpi_src attribute with the retina image path if it exists.


Add retina tag to your build config

plugins {
	compile ':retina-tag:1.1.0'

Grals 3

dependencies {
	compile 'com.bertramlabs.plugins:retina-tag:3.0.0'


Add retina_tag.js to your application.js file after including jQuery:

//=require retina_tag

Add double pixel resolution images in your assets directory with the @2x modifier

Be sure to also specify the base dimensions in your image_tag calls:

<asset:image src='logo.png' height=50/>

Awesome right?

Forcing Refresh after loading dynamic content

Retina tag listens to the global event on document called retina_tag:refresh. Firing this event will force retina_tag to rescan the dom for images and update their image src if necessary. Useful if loading content dynamically. Note: retina_tag automatically supports turbolinks.

Override Hidpi src attribute

In some cases it becomes necessary to override the data-hidpi-src attribute and skip asset pipeline. A good example of this might be to load a users profile picture which is stored elsewhere.

	<asset:image src="${'medium')}" data-hidpi-src="${'medium_2x')" height="75%" width="75"/>
