garlicjs-rails wraps the Garlic.js library in a rails engine for simple use with the asset pipeline provided by rails 3.1. The gem includes the development (non-minified) source for ease of exploration. The asset pipeline will minify in production.

Garlic.js allows you to automatically persist your forms' text field values locally, until the form is submitted. This way, your users don't lose any precious data if they accidentally close their tab or browser.

It strives to have a javascript agnostic interface for UI/UX developers that might want to use it. Just add some data-persist="garlic" in your form tags, and you're good to go!


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'garlicjs-rails'


Add the following directive to your Javascript manifest file (application.js):

//= require garlic


Garlic.js relies on localStorage, which is only compatible with "modern" browsers: IE8+, Chrome 4+, FF 4+, Safari 4+, Opera 11+. To add support for IE6 and IE7, add the localstorageshim-rails gem to your Gemfile:

gem 'localstorageshim-rails'

And add the following line to your application layout (must be before garlicjs is loaded):

<%= localstorage_shim %>
