Rails template to setup a new Rails 3 app to use the new jQuery drivers instead of the default prototype ones.
How to Use - New Project
rails new <appname> -m <path/to/jquery.rb>
So, for example, if you make download this template in
rails new <appname> -m ~/Sites/jquery.rb
Otherwise, you can run it directly from github like so:
rails new <appname> -m https://github.com/lleger/Rails-3-jQuery/raw/master/jquery.rb
How to Use - Existing Project
If you're converting a Rails 3 app to jQuery, you can use
rake rails:template to execute the template inside your existing app.
rake rails:template LOCATION=https://github.com/lleger/Rails-3-jQuery/raw/master/jquery.rb

The template creates a new rakefile called
lib/tasks that includes a rake tast
jquery:update to update the jQuery js and Rails drivers js files. To use, simply run the following command:
The rake task will automatically download both js files and overwrite those in
This template works via this process:
- Remove old prototype js
You are free to make any and all modifications to the template and use it in whatever appropriate context you desire, as long as you keep the attributions in place.
