ViewAssets Build Status

A new method to manage assets in a rails project. Instead of using the default assets managing style in rails 3.2, this gem will introduce a new way to manage your assets. This is only a prototype of the whole project, the fullfledged version will publish soon. It works like assetpipeline, but comes with different conventions. It doesn't include all your assets simply even if you have view/page or controller specific assets. It is page-specific.

Conventions/Rules

According to ViewAssets, there are three folders in /public folder:

* vendor
* lib
* app

Each sence of them are the same as in rails3 assetpipeline.

DIRECTIVES

for javascript double-slash syntax => "//= require_vendor xxx" space-asterisk syntax => " = require_vendor xxx" slash-asterisk syntax => "/= require_vendor xxx */"

for stylesheets space-asterisk syntax => " = require_vendor xxx" slash-asterisk syntax => "/= require_vendor xxx */"

Usage

First, include ViewAssets in helpers/application_helper.rb

module ApplicationHelper
  include ViewAssets
end

Add some other codes in your views/layouts/application.html.rb

<%= include_assets_with_assets_mvc(params[:controller], params[:action]) %>

If some of your controllers use their own layout file, and following rules in ViewAssets, then you should add that code above too.

This project rocks and uses MIT-LICENSE.
