Sprockets, according to the Gemfile.lock is now at 2.2.2, and the frontend_js directory has a that states:

This directory should be moved to app/assets/javascripts/frontend, but right now sprockets doesn't let us not exclude it from being bundled in the application. This is fixed in Sprockets 2.2.0, which will hopefully be in use at some point before we release Concerto 2.

I notice that we have a app/assets/javascripts/frontend directory now with screen_setup.js. Can we mix that with the contents of frontend_js?


bamnet commented Jan 16, 2014

I don't think screen_setup.js should be mixed with "frontend" because it's not part of the frontend package that we build. The frontend needs a clean directory untouched by the asset pipeline somewhere for the build scripts, if that can be under the app/assets/javascripts directory that's cool.

@mfrederickson So I randomly gave this a try and my whole app silently failed. Do we need to pass something special to Sprockets to prevent it from bundling the frontend_js?

Probably, but I have no idea. This was spurred by a comment that bamnet
had made months ago.
