Gem Version

Form helpers. Will be integrated with SimpleForm.


Add to your Gemfile these fllowing lines:

gem "jquery-rails" # Need to be explicitly specified
gem "formize"

Assets and configurations

Formize comes with basic scripts and stylesheets which must be included in the layout (at least at the start).

In Rails 3.0.x

Formize requires the gem jquery-rails, so if you don't already use it:

rails generate jquery:install --ui

Then install formize in your app like jquery-rails:

rails generate formize:install

These previous commands install all the needed files in your public/ directory. Then the files can be included with an helper:

# app/views/layouts/application.html.erb
<%= formize_include_tag -%>

In Rails ≥ 3.1

With the asset pipeline, there is no need to run generators or copy files. So for stylesheets:

# app/assets/stylesheets/application.css
*= require formize

And for javascripts:

# app/assets/javascripts/application.js
*= require formize

Default configuration file

To install the default configuration file (config/initializers/formize.rb), the generator must be run:

rails generate formize:install


TODO: Rewrite examples



Unroll (replacement of ComboBox)

MonoChoice (dynamic selector)

Contributing to Formize

  • Check out the latest master to make sure the feature hasn't been implemented or the bug hasn't been fixed yet

  • Check out the issue tracker to make sure someone already hasn't requested it and/or contributed it

  • Fork the project

  • Start a feature/bugfix branch

  • Commit and push until you are happy with your contribution

  • Make sure to add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Please try not to mess with the Rakefile, version, or history. If you want to have your own version, or is otherwise necessary, that is fine, but please isolate to its own commit so I can cherry-pick around it.
