Devise Formtastic

Devise Formtastic is a Formtastic form builder for Devise with some extra features like full I18n support and dynamic page titles.


  • Ruby 1.9 or later
  • Rails 3.2 or later


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem "devise-formtastic"

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install devise-formtastic

Devise Formtastic depends on latest stable versions of Devise and Formtastic gems, so you don't have to add them in your Gemfile if you don't want to specify version, git repository, etc.

All generators works as normal:

$ rails generate formtastic:install
$ rails generate devise:install
$ rails generate devise User

Don't forget to require Formtastic styles in your asset pipeline:

*= require formtastic


Generating views

If you want to modify Devise Formtastic views, you can copy them to app/views/:

$ rails g devise:views

Dynamic page titles

Devise Formtastic sets @title variable for each page (if it's not already set in controllers), so you can use it in your layouts:

  <title><%= "#{@title} | " unless @title.blank? %>Dummy App</title>

  <%= content_tag(:h1, @title) unless @title.blank? %>

I18n support

All buttons, titles, links, hint texts, etc. are configurable using locales.

    sign_in: "Log in"
    sign_up: "Sign up"
    sign_in: "Log in"
    sign_up: "Join now"
    sign_in: "Login"
    sign_up: "Registration"

For full list of available options please take a look at default locale file.
