A gem to add in-place-editable fields to your Rails project. It is a wrapper for the Jeditable jQuery plugin, so most options for .jeditable() can be passed through the options parameter of the helpers.



Assuming a Rails 3 project, in your Gemfile, add:

gem 'jeditable-rails'

Suppose you have a User model with a #zip_code attribute.

# app/views/users/show.html.erb
<h1>View/Edit your profile</h1>
<b>Zip Code:</b>
<%= editable_field @user, :zip_code %>

The helpers can be used in any view you like. The field appears as normal text to the user, but when clicked, turns into a form field that will then be submitted back to the server. By default, jeditable-rails requires an update action when a PUT is done to url_for(object), which is generated by default for Rails scaffolds.

Contributing to jeditable-rails

  • Check out the latest master to make sure the feature hasn’t been implemented or the bug hasn’t been fixed yet

  • Check out the issue tracker to make sure someone already hasn’t requested it and/or contributed it

  • Fork the project

  • Start a feature/bugfix branch

  • Commit and push until you are happy with your contribution

  • Make sure to add tests for it. This is important so I don’t break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Please try not to mess with the Rakefile, version, or history. If you want to have your own version, or is otherwise necessary, that is fine, but please isolate to its own commit so I can cherry-pick around it.
