Twitter Bootstrap integration

Disclaimer - SimpleForm 2.0

We are working on the Twitter Bootstrap integration on the master branch. You can see an example application here:

We would be very happy if you could use Simpleform master and open up issues for whatever you find!

If you want to try another solution in the section below has a tutorial about integration with SimpleForm 1.5 made by our contributors.

Simple Form 1.5


Instructions for (probably half-baked) Twitter Bootstrap integration (SimpleForm 1.5):

1) Create lib/simple_form/contained_input_component.rb with the following code:

module SimpleForm 
  module Components 
    module ContainedInput 
      def contained_input 
        '<div class="controls">' + input + (error.nil? ? '' : error) + '</div>'
  module Inputs 
    class Base 
      include SimpleForm::Components::ContainedInput

2) In config/initializers/simple_form.rb, modify options like this (via

config.components = [ :label, :contained_input ]
SimpleForm.wrapper_class = 'control-group'
SimpleForm.wrapper_error_class = 'error'
SimpleForm.label_class = 'control-label'
SimpleForm.error_class = 'help-inline'
SimpleForm.form_class = 'form-horizontal'

3) Add the following to the end of config/initializers/simple_form.rb (before the last end):

require 'simple_form/contained_input_component.rb'
