Activo was originally developed as a theme for the web-app-theme plugin. It was extended and now includes two extra stylesheets – one for formtastic and the other for attrtastic. It also comes with some css for the jQuery library, including the datePicker plugin. You can use only the ones you need. Click here for more screenshots or try the live demo here.

* Web App Theme is a Rails plugin that generates a complete web application layout.

* Formtastic makes it easier to create HTML forms in your Rails applications.

* Attrtastic is similar in usage to formtastic and allows to easily display AR record information. It helps in the creation of show and index pages.
