Change History / Release Notes

Version 1.0.15

  • added data-association-insertion-method that gives more control over where to insert the new nested fields. It takes a jquery method as parameter that inserts the new data. before, after, append, prepend, etc. Default: before.
  • data-association-insertion-position is still available and acts as an alias. Probably this will be deprecated in the future.

Version 1.0.14

  • When playing with simple_form and twitter-bootstrap, I noticed it is crucial that I call the correct nested-fields function. That is: fields_for for standard forms, semantic_fields_for in formtastic and simple_fields_for for simple_form. Secondly, this was not enough, I needed to be able to hand down options to that method. So in the link_to_add_association method you can now an extra option :render_options and that hash will be handed to the association-builder.

    This allows the nested fields to be built correctly with simple_form for twitter-bootstrap.

Version 1.0.13

  • A while ago we added the option to add a javascript callback on inserting a new associated object, I now made sure we can add a callback on insertion and on removal of a new item. One example where this was useful for me is visible in the demo project cocoon_simple_form_demo where I implemented a belongs_to relation, and either select from a list, or add a new element. So: the callback-mechanism has changed, and now the callback is bound to the parent container, instead of the link itself. This is because we can also bind the removal callback there (as the removal link is inserted in the html dynamically).

    For more info, see the README.

Version 1.0.12

  • using "this" in association-insertion-node is now possible

If you are using rails < 3.1, you should run

rails g cocoon:install

to install the new cocoon.js to your public/javascripts folder.

Version 1.0.11

Version 1.0.10

  • Fuck! Built the gem with 1.9.2 again. Built the gem again with 1.8.7.

Version 1.0.9

  • is now rails 3.1 compatible. If you are not using Rails 3.1 yet, this should have no effect. For rails 3.1 the cocoon.js no longer needs to be installed using the rails g cocoon:install. It is automatically used from the gem.

Version 1.0.8

  • Loosened the gem dependencies.

Version 1.0.7 (20/06/2011)

Apparently, the gem 1.0.6 which was generated with ruby 1.9.2 gave the following error upon install:

  uninitialized constant Psych::Syck (NameError)

This is related to this bug:

This should be fixed in the next release of rubygems, the fix should be to build the gem with ruby 1.8.7. Let's hope this works.

Version 1.0.6 (19/06/2011)

  • The javascript has been improved to consistently use e.preventDefault instead of returning false.


rails g cocoon:install

to copy the new cocoon.js to your public/javascripts folder.

Version 1.0.5 (17/06/2011)

  • This release make sure that the link_to_add_association generates a correctly clickable link in the newer rails 3 versions as well. In rails 3.0.8. the html was double escaped.

If you are upgrading from 1.0.4, you just have to update the gem. No other actions needed. If you are updating from earlier versions, it is safer to do

rails g cocoon:install

This will copy the new cocoon.js files to your public/javascripts folder.
