ActiveScaffold provides a quick and powerful user interfaces for CRUD (create, read, update, delete) operations for Rails applications. It offers additonal features including searching, pagination & layout control.

Branch Details

This branch (rails-3.2) on Github supports Rails 3.1 & 3.2, and is the current source of the 3.2.x line of gems. The master branch has dropped support for Rails 3.1

Quick Start

To get started with a new Rails project

Added to Gemfile

gem 'active_scaffold'

Run the following commands

bundle install
bundle exec rake db:create
rails g active_scaffold User name:string
bundle exec rake db:migrate

Add the following line to app/assets/javascripts/application.js

//= require active_scaffold

Add the following line to /app/assets/stylesheets/application.css

*= require active_scaffold

Run the app and visit localhost:3000/teams


See Wiki for instructions on customising ActiveScaffold and to find the full API details.

Compatability Issues

jQuery 1.9 deprecates some methods that this branch still uses (NB: jQuery 1.9 is supported in the master branch). You'll therefore need to ensure you use jQuery 1.8. You can do this by fixing version in your Gemfile:

gem 'jquery-rails', '2.1.4'

active_scaffold_batch plugin gem (versions 3.2.x) require the master branch. Therefore if you wish to try using active_scaffold_batch with this branch, you'll need to fork the project and edit the runtime dependency in the gempsec file (use at your own discretion)


ActiveScaffold grew out of a project named Ajaxscaffold dating back to 2006. It has had numerous contributors including:

ActiveScaffold Gem/Plugin by Scott Rutherford (, Richard White (, Lance Ivy (, Ed Moss, Tim Harper and Sergio Cambra (

Uses DhtmlHistory by Brad Neuberg (

Uses Querystring by Adam Vandenberg

Uses Paginator by Bruce Williams

Supports RecordSelect by Lance Ivy
