To gemify the assets of bootstrap-tagsinput jQuery plugin for Rails >= 3.1

Gem Version


Designed for Bootstrap 2.3.2 and 3


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'bootstrap-tagsinput-rails'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install bootstrap-tagsinput-rails


in app/assets/application.js

//= require bootstrap-tagsinput

in app/assets/application.css

*= require bootstrap-tagsinput

in form view, you should add data-role='tagsinput' within input tag as the follows: for example, in simple-form view template,

<%= f.input :tag_list, input_html:{data:{role:'tagsinput'}} %>

Or if using Rails 4 with Bootstrap, use the following,

<%= f.text_field :tag_list, 'data-role'=>'tagsinput' %>

That's it
