Using a gem / plugin

Hey guys,

I just started using Rails and Ruby this week. I come from PHP and I
LOVE RAILS. It is so clean and fresh :slight_smile:

I wanted to create a very simple that has no database
representation ... I found several active_form approaches. My problem
is to use those classes after installing them, maybe that is a real
newbie quetsion :slight_smile: So what I did:

$ rails plugin install https://github.com/remvee/active_form.git

Do I have to do anything else after that in order to have that plugin
available in may code? Because I get the error: "uninitialized
constant ActiveForm"

#app/controllers/register.rb

class Register < ActiveForm
  def index
    @register_form = Register.new
  end
end

#app/models/register.rb

class Register < ActiveForm

end

Thank you so much in advance,
Philipp

Which operating system and you using and which version of Rails?
I don't know about active_form myself but assuming you are using Rails
3 then you should not need to install it as a plugin, you should just
be able to include it in Gemfile (in your application) specifying the
source, and run
bundle install
which should install it.
