MyFeedbackForm v 0.0.7

The gem does not have a server side interface, it has only the client side, unfortunatly you need to implement a way to see the feedbacks you received


Specify Gem dependencies

gem 'my-feedback-form'

Then run bundle

Hooking into an application

Mount the routes in the rails app routes.rb file.

mount MyFeedbackForm::Engine => "/my_feedback_form"

Add in the head of your rails app layout the link to gem javascript and stylesheets.

<%= stylesheet_link_tag    "my_feedback_form/application", :media => "all" %>
<%= javascript_include_tag "my_feedback_form/application" %>

Also add in your layout the feedback modal. You may want to add a condition to insert this modal on your page. If you use devise you can use the same condition.

<% if user_signed_in? %>
  <%= render 'my_feedback_form/feedbacks/modal' %>
<% end %>

Add a button where you want to access the feedback modal. The button must be like the folowing.

<button type="button" id="feedback-button" data-toggle="modal" data-target="#my-feedback-form-modal">Feedback</button>

Setup the app database.

rake railties:install:migrations

rake db:migrate

View Customisation

If you want to customise My Feedback Form views, you can copy over the views using the (Devise-inspired) generator.

rails g my_feedback_form:views

User Authentication

If you are using Devise to authenticate users, it will be saved automatically, otherwise you must extend feedbacks controller.
