Select2 for rails asset pipeline

Select2 is a jQuery based replacement for select boxes. It supports searching, remote data sets, and infinite scrolling of results.

The select2-rails gem integrates the Select2 jQuery plugin with the Rails asset pipeline.


Install select2-rails gem

Add select2-rails to your Gemfile and run bundle install:

gem "select2-rails"

Include select2-rails javascript assets

Add the following to your app/assets/javascripts/application.js:

//= require select2

Include select2-rails stylesheet assets

Add to your app/assets/stylesheets/application.css:

*= require select2


From v2.1.0 on, select2-rails's version will match the version of Select2 it uses.

The last number of the version is the patch version specific to the gem. For example, for a version of the form 2.x.y, 2.x is the release of Select2 we should be compatible with, and y is the patch version specific to the gem (ie. to resolve any gem-specific issues that crop up).
