MooTools! For Rails! So great.
This gem provides:
- MooTools 1.4.5
- MooTools More 126.96.36.199
- the MooTools UJS adapter
- assert_select_mootools to test MooTools responses in Ruby tests
Apps generated with Rails 3.1 or later include jquery-rails in the
Gemfile by default. To use MooTools instead, you have to pass the
mootools option. So just make a new app:
rails new myapp -j mootools
If upgrading from an older version of rails, or for rails 3.0 apps, add the mootools-rails gem to your Gemfile.
bundle install. The rest of the installation depends on
whether the asset pipeline is being used.
Rails 3.1 or greater (with asset pipeline enabled)
The mootools and mootools-ujs files will be added to the asset pipeline and available for you to use. If they're not already in
//= require mootools //= require mootools_ujs
If you wish to use MooTools More as well, you can add this line to
//= require mootools-more
Rails 3.0 (or greater with asset pipeline disabled)

mootools:install. Running the
generator will remove any Prototype JS files you may happen to have, and
copy MooTools and the MooTools-ujs driver for Rails (and optionally,
MooTools More) to the
This gem will also hook into the Rails configuration process, removing
minified and un-minified versions of MooTools and MooTools More, only the minified versions will be included in the
:defaults when Rails is run in
test mode (un-minified versions will be included when Rails is run in
To invoke the generator, run:
rails generate mootools:install #--more to enable MooTools More
Feel free to open an issue ticket if you find something that could be improved. A couple notes:
If the mootools or mootools-more scripts are outdated (i.e. maybe a new version of MooTools was released yesterday), feel free to open an issue and prod me to get that thing updated. However, for security reasons, I won't be accepting pull requests with updated mootools or mootools-more scripts.
Many thanks to the jquery-rails guys.
