Gallery breaks with AngularJS urls (or any url with # in it) #161

In the default Angular mode, the images in the gallery don't show correctly. The reason is that Angular will use a hashtag for the url (e.g. and the folder path for the images is built off of that URL. Wraith then references the url with that hashtag in it, which the browser treats as a fragment identifier, not as a full url:

Original URL:
Img src:

<img class="short-screenshot img-thumbnail" src="thumbnails/__#__component__hotkeys/1024_phantomjs_diff.png">

To fix this, I think a simple substitution of # with the encoded entity (%23) will work (it does when I manually change the generated HTML).

Sure thing. I test against a local environment, so it won't work locally w/o setting it up.

#Headless browser option
  webkit: "phantomjs"
  # gecko: "slimerjs"

#If you want to have multiple snapping files, set the file name here
snap_file: "javascript/snap.js"

# Type the name of the directory that shots will be stored in
  - 'shots'

# Add only 2 domains, key will act as a label
  local: "http://localhost:9001"
  live: ""

#Type screen widths below, here are a couple of examples
  - 1024

# If you don't want to name the paths explicitly you can use a yaml
# collection as follows, and names will be derived by replacing / with _

 - '/#/overview'
 - '/#/component/configs'
 - '/#/component/hotkeys'

#Amount of fuzz ImageMagick will use
fuzz: '20%'

#Set the number of days to keep the site spider file
  - 10

It's an ugly hack, but this code in gallery_template.erb works:

<a href="<%=file[:filename].sub! '#', '%23'%>">
    <img class="short-screenshot img-thumbnail" src="<%=path%><%=file[:thumb].sub! '#', '%23'%>">

Have to do the same thing for the thumbnails as well. Unfortunately I don't know enough Ruby to have a better solution just yet (trying to figure out where in the gallery.rb file this would fit).

Okay, just realized there is a much simpler solution/workaround to this issue, and that is to name the urls to be validated:

  home: '/#/overview'
  configs: '/#/component/configs'
  hotkeys: '/#/component/hotkeys'

Doing that solves the problem. Feel free to close this issue if you'd like.
