I'm a Ruby on Rails developer. I have two pieces of functionality I'd like to accomplish via a Gem. Say I have three Gem choices for one piece, and 7 Gem choices for the other piece. I'd like to solicit recommended combinations that are know to work well together in accomplishing the functionalities.
Is there a way to accomplish this without running afoul of basic posting guidelines?
I'm afraid it would be considered 'solicitation of opinion'?
I'm building a Rails app that is very forms centric, AND has a very state based application workflow , i.e. a submission can be in one of 13 states, 'submitted', 'cleared' .... 'bound','policy issued'. The processing of these states is complex.
So I would like to find a good combination of a forms Gem and a state machine Gem.
So far I've looked at Formtastic and ActiveAdmin for the Forms. Either one would work for me.
I used acts_as_state_machine in a prototype years ago, it looks like it was renamed to AASM?.
Now I find
state_machine AASM state_manager ragel Simple State Machine ....
Anybody have a recommended combination of the forms and state machine Gems?
