Add the line below in Gemfile of your Rails 3.1 app.

gem "baren"

Place a .png.pjs file or two in {your app root}/app/assets/images. This is an example of processing.js script:

 /* reddisc.png.pjs */
 /* @pjs transparent=true; */
 size(30, 30);
 background(0, 0, 0, 0);
 stroke(255, 0, 0);
 fill(255, 0, 0);
 ellipse(15, 15, 28, 28);
