Using Javascript to Populate Forms During Development

During development, working with forms quickly gets annoying because you have to constantly fill in each field, sometimes with unique info. One way around this is to write a little Javascript code that just populates the fields. I use something like this on the bottom of the form. I had jQuery no-conflict mode on in this case. In your app you might be able to get away replacing _j() with $():

<% if ENV['RAILS_ENV']=='development' -%>


<% end -%>
