Sugar, tastefully bundled for the Rails 3.0 and up. Sweet!


This gem requires Rails 3.0+ and has been tested on the following versions:

  • 4.0
  • 3.0
  • 3.1
  • 3.2

This gem has been tested against the following Ruby versions:

  • MRI 1.8.7
  • REE 1.8.7
  • 1.9.2
  • 1.9.3
  • JRuby
  • Rubinius


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem "sugar-rails"

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install sugar-rails


sugar-rails supports both default and customized builds of Sugar.

Rails 3.1+

For Rails 3.1 and greater, the files will be added to the asset pipeline and available for you to use.

To enable:

  • Add the following line to the file app/assets/javascripts/application.js (or other sprockets manifest):
//= require sugar

The following default builds are available:

  • sugar (default minified package)
  • sugar-full (full minified package)
  • sugar-development (full development package)

Rails 3.0

This gem adds an installation generator to Rails 3, sugar:install. Running the generator will install the JavaScript file (default minified package) necessary to use Sugar.

  • Invoke the generator:
$ rails generate sugar:install
  • Add the following to your layout or view files:
<%= javascript_include_tag "sugar" %>


  1. Fork it
  2. Create your feature branch (git checkout -b my-new-feature)
  3. Commit your changes (git commit -am 'Added some feature')
  4. Push to the branch (git push origin my-new-feature)
  5. Create a Pull Request
