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: https://github.com/rafaelfranca/simple_form-bootstrap

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

How

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 '

    ' + input + (error.nil? ? '' : error) + '
    ' end end end module Inputs class Base include SimpleForm::Components::ContainedInput end end end
  2. In config/initializers/simple_form.rb, modify options like this (via http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7198109/rails-using-simple-form-and-integrating-twitter-bootstrap#answer-7300806):

    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'
