Require jquery-fileupload in your app/assets/application.js file.
//= require jquery-fileupload
The snippet above will add the following js files to the mainfest file.
//=require jquery-fileupload/vendor/jquery.ui.widget //=require jquery-fileupload/vendor/load-image //=require jquery-fileupload/vendor/canvas-to-blob //=require jquery-fileupload/vendor/tmpl //=require jquery-fileupload/jquery.iframe-transport //=require jquery-fileupload/jquery.fileupload //=require jquery-fileupload/jquery.fileupload-fp //=require jquery-fileupload/jquery.fileupload-ui //=require jquery-fileupload/locale
If you only need the basic files, just add the code below to your application.js file. Basic setup guide
The basic setup only includes the following files:
//=require jquery-fileupload/vendor/jquery.ui.widget //=require jquery-fileupload/jquery.iframe-transport //=require jquery-fileupload/jquery.fileupload
Using the stylesheet
Require the stylesheet file to app/assets/stylesheets/application.css
*= require jquery.fileupload-ui
Using the middleware
jquery.iframe-transport fallback transport has some special caveats regarding the response data type, http status, and character encodings.
jquery-fileupload-rails includes a middleware that handles these inconsistencies seamlessly. If you decide to use it, create an initializer that adds the middleware to your application's middleware stack.
This app uses paperclip and twitter-bootstrap-rails

Thanks to Sebastian Tschan for writing an awesome file upload plugin.
