Default changes to behaviour

Installing this gem will enable the following changes by default:

  • The default date input will be :datepicker instead of :date_select
  • Filters and selects will offer integration with enumerize
  • All select boxes will use select2


Range Filter

To filter based on a range of values you can use range_select like this:

filter :number, as: :range_select



With select2 the select control looks nicer, it works great with large collections and multiple selection.
