0.6.6 - 2019-04-26


  • Support Rails 6 by removing constraint on ActionCable


0.6.5 - 2019-04-04


  • Make Rake Task System Calls Fail Loudly


0.6.3 - 2018-08-14


  • Typo in install rake task


0.6.3 - 2018-08-14


  • Potential double yarn install
  • assets:precompile not defined properly (when no Sprockets)

0.6.2 - 2017-05-11


  • Typo in install generator. Add brunch-babel package


0.6.1 - 2017-05-04


  • Potential Heroku bug where assets would be cleared out on deploy.

0.6.0 - 2017-03-12

Upgrading to 0.6.0 from 0.5.x

  • Update gem with bundle update breakfast
  • Update the JS package with yarn upgrade breakfast-rails
  • If deploying with Capistrano, remove require "breakfast/capistrano" from your Capfile. Remove any custom Breakfast settings from config/deploy.rb. Ensure that you are using Capistrano Rails and have require 'capistrano/rails' or require 'capistrano/rails/assets' in your Capfile.
  • If deploying with Heroku, run the following commands:
    1. heroku buildpacks:clear
    2. heroku buildpacks:set heroku/nodejs --index 1
    3. heroku buildpacks:set heroku/ruby --index 2


  • Puma hanging in clustered mode. Breakfast would fail to cleanly exit on Puma exit, causing the server to hang indefinitely.
  • Bumped Rails version dependency, can be used with Rails 5.0 and greater. (Allows usage with Rails 5.1)


  • Capistrano rake tasks. Previous behavior has been included into the Rails asset:precompile task. Using the standard Capistrano Rails gem is all that required now.
  • Need for a custom Heroku buildpack.

0.5.1 - 2017-02-06


If public/assets does not exist Breakfast will now create the folder before attempting to write to it.

0.5.0 - 2017-02-03


  • Adds support for Yarn.
  • New installs now require Yarn
  • Capistrano options :breakfast_yarn_path && :breakfast_yarn_install_command


  • NPM client requirement
  • Capistrano options :breakfast_npm_path && :breakfast_npm_install_command have been removed.


Upgrading to 0.5.0 from 0.4.0

  • Update gem with bundle update breakfast
  • Bump the breakfast-rails version in package.json to 0.5.0
  • Ensure Yarn is installed
  • Run yarn install

Note If you are deploying with Capistrano then Yarn is expected to be installed on

0.4.0 - 2016-11-14

Upgrading to 0.4.0 from 0.3.0

  • Update gem with bundle update breakfast
  • Bump the breakfast-rails version in package.json to 0.4.0
  • Run npm install

Note Now by default asset fingerprinting will be on by default in production. A copy of each with the original filename will be present as well, so any hard-coded links to assets will still work correctly.


  • Asset Digests. Now when deploying assets will have fingerprints added to their file names. This allows browsers to aggressively cache your assets.

  • New Option: breakfast.manifest.digest. Defaults to false in development / test and true everywhere else. When true, enables Rails to serve fingerprinted assets.

  • Rake Commands to trigger certain behavior:

    • breakfast:assets:build Manually run a compilation step.
    • breakfast:assets:build_production Manually trigger a production build. This will cause assets to get minified.
    • breakfast:assets:digest Run through your compiled assets and add a fingerprint to each one. Creates a copy, leaving a file with the original filename and a duplicate with an md5 fingerprint.
    • breakfast:assets:clean Removes any assets from the output folder that are not specified in the manifest file (removes out of date files).
    • breakfast:assets:nuke Removes manifest and fingerprinted assets from the output folder.
  • New Capistrano Option: :breakfast_npm_install_command Defaults to just install. Can be overridden to redirect output to dev/null. Example:

    set :breakfast_npm_install_command, "install > /dev/null 2>&1"


  • Fixed small CSS issue if box-sizing is not set border-box globally.


Many many thanks to the contributors for this release!

0.3.1 - 2016-10-19

  • Better support for determining if Server is running. Using puma, passneger, etc. instead of the default rails server command now work.

0.3.0 - 2016-09-28

Upgrading from 0.2.0

  • Update gem with bundle update breakfast

  • Bump the breakfast-rails version in package.json to 0.3.1

  • Run npm install

  • If you have modified the config.breakfast.view_folders option you will need to replace it. The new option is config.breakfast.source_code_folders and it defaults to [Rails.root.join("app")]. If you have view or Ruby files that you would like to trigger reloads outside of the app folder then append those paths by adding:

    config.breakfast.source_code_folders << Rails.root.join("lib")

    To which ever environment you want Breakfast to run in (probably config/environments/development.rb).


  • New status bar that allows the user to switch reload strategies on the fly
  • Support for Haml & Slim files (without .html extension)
  • Reloading on ruby file changes.
  • Specify minimum Node & NPM versions when installing (avoid awkward and none descriptive error messages)
  • NPM binary path for Capistrano


  • config.breakfast.view_folders change to config.breakfast.source_code_folders. Change brought about by need to trigger reloads when Ruby source code changes.


  • config.breakfast.view_folders is no longer supported. Deprecated in favor of source_code_folders option.


Many many thanks to the contributors for this release!
