acts-as-taggable-on missing from gemspec? #46

I'm using blogit on rails 4, so I bundled the gem from the rails4 branch. After finishing the installation instructions, I encountered this error:

undefined local variable or method `acts_as_taggable' for #<Class:0x007fd01890a728>

I'm assuming this is because 10bce41 added the acts-as-taggable-on dependency to the Gemfile instead of the gemspec?

I was able to get the app working by adding this to my own Gemfile:

gem "acts-as-taggable-on", github: "mbleigh/acts-as-taggable-on"

I'd be happy to submit a pull request if someone can confirm that updating the gemspec is the proper solution.


I guess adding the dependency to the gemspec is not desired if tagging is supposed to be optional. In this case, the acts_as_taggable macro could be called conditionally in the model. I'm willing to submit a PR.


👍 for a PR to resolve this issue. The acts_as_taggable dependency should be included in the gemspec shouldn't it?

Hi guys - sorry for taking so long to get back to you. I work on Blogit in my spare time which is non-existent at the moment.

I removed acts_as_taggable in an earlier version because, for a short while, it wasn't compatible with Rails 4.
Now that they're up to date, it should be added back to the Gemfile


I"m still getting this error in the rails4 branch


Same here.
