Posted in add index to nested forms

Looks like there's index method availalbe

<%= form_for @person do |person_form| %>

Posted in NameError: uninitialized constant Stripe

Did you forget to require stripe?

No, the method should be in the model. That's where the data "lives".
The controller, just… erm… controls the data.

What could be a solution is that you add associated records from the Invoice model. So within your attributes you call that method, eg. %w{ Date Vendor_name product_name}
