== Version Information

Please note the following list of Active Scaffold branches and Rails versions. Master will not work with Rails < 2.2

Active Scaffold master currently supports rails-3.1, but incompatible changes can be introduced, if you want an stable version, use rails-2.3
Rails 3.0.*: Active Scaffold rails-3.0
Rails 2.3.*: Active Scaffold rails-2.3
Rails 2.2.*: Active Scaffold rails-2.2
Rails 2.1.*: Active Scaffold rails-2.1
Rails < 2.1: Active Scaffold 1-1-stable (no guarantees)

Since Rails 2.3, render_component plugin is needed for nested and embbeded scaffolds. It works with rails-2.3 branch from ewildgoose repository:
script/plugin install git:// -r rails-2.3

== Rails 3.0 compatible fork of activesaffold by Volker Hochstein:

Since Rails 3.0 render_component is not used for nesting, but is optional for embedded scaffolds.
Since Rails 3.0, is also needed.

If you want to install as plugins under vendor/plugins, install these versions:
  rails plugin install git://
  rails plugin install git://
  rails plugin install git:// -r 'rails-3.0'

If you want to use the gem, add to your Gemfile:
  gem "active_scaffold_vho"

In case you would like to use most recent commit:
  gem 'active_scaffold_vho', :git => 'git://', :branch => 'rails-3.0'

== Pick your own javascript framework

The Rails 3.0 version uses unobtrusive Javascript, so you are free to pick your javascript framework.
Out of the box Prototype or JQuery are supported:

Prototype 1.7 (default js framework)
rails.js in git://

JQuery 1.4.1, 1.4.2

JQuery > 1.4.2

To configure the javascript framework when installed under vendor/plugins/
uncomment last line in ...plugins/active_scaffold/lib/active_scaffold_env.rb in order to use jquery instead of prototype

To configure the javascript framework when installed as a gem:
Add a config/initializers/active_scaffold.rb containing:
ActiveScaffold.js_framework = :jquery # :prototype is the default

== Rails 3.1 compatible fork of activesaffold by Volker Hochstein:
under construction
