A gem to add in-place-editable fields to your Rails project. It is a wrapper for the Jeditable jQuery plugin, so most options for
$.editable() can be passed through the
options parameter of the helpers.
Assuming a Rails 3 project, in your Gemfile, add:
Suppose you have a
User model with a
# app/views/users/show.html.erb <h1>View/Edit your profile</h1> ... <b>Zip Code:</b> <%= editable_field @user, :zip_code %>
The helpers can be used in any view you like. The field appears as normal text to the user, but when clicked, turns into a form field that will then be submitted back to the server. By default, jeditable-rails requires an
update action when a PUT is done to
url_for(object), which is generated by default for Rails scaffolds.
