Backport of Rails 3.1.x Sprockets integration to Rails 3.0.x

Most code has been extracted from the Rails 3-1-stable branch. Modified to suit our needs.


In your Gemfile:

gem "sprockets_rails3_backport" whatever supplementary gems you want for the asset pipeline:

gem 'coffee-script', '2.2.0'
gem 'therubyracer', '0.9.9'
gem 'uglifier', '>= 1.0.3'

In your routes.rb:

MyApp::Application.routes.draw do
  if (app = Rails.application).config.assets.compile
    mount app.assets => app.config.assets.prefix
  # ...

Here are the various config.assets options and their defaults:

config.assets.paths                    = []
config.assets.precompile               = [{ |path| !['.js', '.css'].include?(File.extname(path)) },
                                           /(?:\/|\\|\A)application\.(css|js)$/ ]
config.assets.prefix                   = "/assets"
config.assets.version                  = ''
config.assets.debug                    = false
config.assets.compile                  = true
config.assets.digest                   = false
config.assets.manifest                 = nil
config.assets.cache_store              = [ :file_store, "#{root}/tmp/cache/assets/" ]
config.assets.js_compressor            = nil
config.assets.css_compressor           = nil
config.assets.initialize_on_precompile = true

Differences from Rails 3.1

This gem was made for Shopify's use, and I've made changes to some behaviour that either didn't work in Rails 3.0, or didn't make sense for Shopify:
