sprockets-rails plugin sets up your Rails application for use with Sprockets. To install it, first install the
sprockets RubyGem, then check out a copy of the
sprockets-rails repository into your
vendor/plugins/ directory. When you run the bundled
sprockets-rails will create two new directories in your application and copy a configuration file into your
sprockets-rails includes a controller named
SprocketsController that renders your application's Sprockets concatenation. When caching is enabled, e.g. in production mode,
SprocketsController uses Rails page caching to save the concatenated output to
public/sprockets.js the first time it is requested. When caching is disabled, e.g. in development mode,
SprocketsController will render a fresh concatenation any time a source file changes.
sprockets-rails also includes a set of Rake tasks for generating the concatenation (
rake sprockets:install_script) and installing provided assets (
rake sprockets:install_assets). Run
sprockets:install_assets any time you add or update a Sprockets plugin in your application. Add
sprockets:install_script as a Capistrano post-deploy hook to generate the Sprockets concatenation on your servers automatically at deploy time.
Here's a walkthrough of the installation process:
gem install --remote sprockets
script/plugin install git://github.com/sstephenson/sprockets-rails.git
You now have
vendor/sprockets/directories in your application, as well as a
config/routes.rbfile to add routes for
ActionController::Routing::Routes.draw do |map| # Add the following line: SprocketsApplication.routes(map) ... end
Adjust your HTML templates to call
<%= sprockets_include_tag %>instead of
sprockets-rails is installed, you can check out Sprockets plugins into the
vendor/sprockets/ directory. By default,
sprockets-rails configures Sprockets' load path to search
vendor/sprockets/*/src/, as well as
