This fork adds a custom horizontal form wrapper and merges append/prepend in a 'group' wrapper

Creating top-level objects TextInput etc doesn't play nicely when using simple_form and formtastic in one project. So I created a solution that directly overrides simple form's internal mappings (which is a bad hack because these APIs might change):

inputs = %w[
  CollectionSelectInput
  DateTimeInput
  FileInput
  GroupedCollectionSelectInput
  NumericInput
  PasswordInput
  RangeInput
  StringInput
  TextInput
]

# Instead of creating top-level custom input classes like TextInput, we wrap it into a module and override
# mapping in SimpleForm::FormBuilder directly
#
SimpleFormBootstrapInputs = Module.new
inputs.each do |input_type|
  superclass = "SimpleForm::Inputs::#{input_type}".constantize

  new_class = SimpleFormBootstrapInputs.const_set(input_type, Class.new(superclass) do
    def input_html_classes
      super.push('form-control')
    end
  end)

  # Now override existing usages of superclass with new_class
  SimpleForm::FormBuilder.mappings.each do |(type, target_class)|
    if target_class == superclass
      SimpleForm::FormBuilder.map_type(type, to: new_class)
    end
  end
end

I had to change the group wrapper to the following so that you can set its right_column html:

  config.wrappers :group, tag: 'div', class: "form-group", error_class: 'has-error',
      defaults: { input_html: { class: 'default-class'} }  do |b|

    b.use :html5
    b.use :min_max
    b.use :maxlength
    b.use :placeholder

    b.optional :pattern
    b.optional :readonly

    b.use :label
    b.wrapper :right_column, tag: :div do |component|
      component.use :input, wrap_with: { class: "input-group" }
      component.use :hint,  wrap_with: { tag: 'span', class: 'help-block' }
      component.use :error, wrap_with: { tag: 'span', class: 'help-block has-error' }
    end
  end

Thanks! I use form horizontal a lot and this has helped!

Has anyone managed to fix the label class issue?
I have set this in the initializer:
config.label_class = 'control-label'
I don't want to set this to 'control-label col-sm-2' because it will mess up all the other forms that are not horizontal.

@anthonykaras you just have that in example

defaults: { right_column_html: { class: 'col-xs-6' }, label_html: {class: 'col-xs-2'}}
