Install this module if you plan on using rails-lineman to deploy Lineman assets inside a Rails application.
To install to your lineman app, cd into your project directory and run:
npm i --save-dev lineman-rails
No further configuration is required.
What does this module do?
rails-lineman gem deals with the production asset deployment such that running
rake assets:precompile will do a clean lineman build of your lineman app, and then
put them on an asset path so your assets get precompiled/fingerprinted by the asset
lineman-rails npm module does is provide lineman plugin behavior to make
the development story easier while working in conjunction with rails.
By default it:
- Sets up API proxying for the server to localhost:3000 for development
- Mounts static routes so that Rails
asset_pathhelpers in development can be provided the same string in both dev & prod while you just happily hack away inside
app/csswithout worrying about it.
- disables the pages task entirely since you'll probably want to use a Rails view, even in development
If you want to add additional staticRoutes (say, for fonts or images), you can do
that by adding properties to the
server.staticRoutes config object.
Configuration options exposed by this plugin must be overridden in your
plugins: rails: namespace: "my-app"
The "namespace" property enables support for rails-lineman's multi-project option,
so your ERB can start looking for your app assets in
