I have a question, how should I proceed?
I believe I have found a bug.
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.
Does SimpleForm works with ORM others than ActiveRecord?
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 >
