Sparks is a rails plugin for handling static file content in your app.
script/plugin install email@example.com:lodestone/sparks.git
Add this line as the last route in config/routes.rb:
map.spark '*:sparkpath', :controller => 'static', :action => 'file'
How to use
This plugin allows you to drop in “static” files into your Rails app that will use the app layout and templating (erb, haml, etc).
%h1 About Us .about We are great.
Now you get /about-us and /about-us.html.
You can also have nested paths like /about/us by creating sub-directories under app/views/static.
Really this is pretty dead-simple.
