There are 3 branches in this project. The master branch shows the simplest use case of just generating initial avatars. The dragonfly-attachments branch shows how to handle image attachments using Dragonfly while defaulting to initial avatars. Finally, the paperclip-attachments branch is similar but uses paperclip to handle image attachments.
You must run
rake db:reset when switching branches as the schema for dragonfly attachments is different than the schema for paperclip-attachments.
