Welcome To RightRails

RightRails is a RubyOnRails plugin for RightJS javascript framework.

It works as a drop in replacement for all the Prototype/Scriptaculous methods, plus it brings some more sweets and routine ajax operation helpers.


  • Lightning fast RightJS library

  • Transparent Prototype/Scriptaculous helpers replacement

  • More powerful and flexible new JavaScript generator for RJS

  • Conventional JavaScript interface for the most common AJAX operations

  • Better controller level access to the rjs generator

  • New ajax-friendly scaffold generator

  • Remote files uploading organization

  • Automatic RightJS modules inclusion handling (including i18n modules)

  • Additional FormBuilder methods for various fields

  • Underscored and ruby-like aliases for RightJS core methods


RightRails is available as a normal ruby-gem

sudo gem install right-rails

Or you can install it as a rails plugin

script/plugin install git://

In case of ruby-gem and Rails 3, add the following into your Gemfile

gem 'right-rails'

If you on Rails 2, add the following code into your environment.rb do |config|
  config.gem 'right-rails'

Once you've done that, run the right_rails generator

script/generate right_rails

Or under Rails 3

rails g right_rails
