rails_json_field

A friendly way for users to edit JSON fields in Rails forms.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'rails_json_field'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install rails_json_field

Note: This gem currently requires jQuery to work.

Usage

Include the following in your javascript manifest:

//= require rails_json_field

Now you're able to use it in forms:

= form_for @foo do |f|
  = f.json_field :bar

Future Features

Some future features include:

  • Removing the jQuery dependency (if possible)
  • Custom class names
  • Better default styling
  • Nested objects
  • Array objects

Thanks

A special thank you to the john_hancock gem for showing me how to structure this kind of gem.
