Welcome to the SimpleForm wiki. Here you will find additional content and documentation
for the SimpleForm project, which complements the project
README and code docs.
Below there's several guides and tutorials created by the community showcasing customizations and configuration usage for SimpleForm.
First of all, search through the Issue Tracker to see if your bug hasn't been fixed yet
master branch. If not, do your best to supply a piece of code or a fresh
Rails application that reproduces your error along the error description and the
expected behavior. Bad Issue reports will be closed until they meet these requirements
so the SimpleForm maintainers can work on it.
If you find a security bug, DO NOT submit an issue here. Please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org instead.
SimpleForm is built on top of Rails FormBuilder, so it should work nicely with any
library that implements the proper ActiveModel API required by ActionPack. But if
you're using an ORM other ActiveRecord than SimpleForm won't be able to discover
the proper input types for the attributes on your model, so you might need to
define them on your own on your forms. For instance, when using Mongoid, you might
need to set options such as
<%= simple_form_for @post do |form| %> <%= form.input :category, collection: Category.all %> <%= form.input :contents, as: :text %> <%= form.input :published, as: :boolean %> <% end >

This page was created by the OSS community and might be outdated or incomplete. Feel free to improve or update this content according to the latest versions of SimpleForm and Rails to help the next developer who visits this wiki after you.
Keep in mind to maintain the guides as simple as possible and to avoid additional dependencies that might be specific to your application or workflow (such as Haml, RSpec, Guard and similars).
