Rake tasks to add Bootstrap, Font Awesome, and Start Bootstrap Landing Pages to a Rails app

License: MIT

Language: CSS


FrontendGenerators

This gem can be used to easily set up a Start Bootstrap theme in your Rails application. The Start Bootstrap code has fully been modified to follow Rails conventions (Rails partials are awesome!).

The FrontendGenerators gem also lets you easily copy the Bootstrap & Font Awesome css, js, and fonts directly into your application. Most people use twitter-bootstrap-rails and font-awesome-rails to access these frontend libraries in their code, but I find it much easier to just have the code in my own applications. It's easier to examine the source code when it's in your application and you can avoid frusterating Rails asset pipeline bugs with this straightforward setup. Annoying bugs are what motivated me to create this gem in the first place.

This video shows how to use the gem.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'frontend-generators'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Update your Rakefile with this code:

require "frontend_generators"
load 'tasks/add_assets.rake'

Bootstrap

To move the Bootstrap files into your Rails application, run this rake task:

bundle exec rake add_assets:bootstrap

Go to application.css and add this line:

*= require bootstrap

Go to application.js and add this line:

//= require bootstrap

The fonts are in the /public/fonts/ directory because Rails keeps changing where the fonts should be and it is annoying to keep up with all the changes.

Font-Awesome

To move the Font-Awesome files into your Rails application, run this rake task:

bundle exec rake add_assets:font_awesome

Go to application.css and add this line:

*= require font_awesome

Start Bootstrap Stylish Portfolio

bundle exec rake add_assets:stylish_portfolio

Add the route to routes.rb:

get 'stylish_portfolios/index'

Rails.application.config.assets.precompile += %w( stylish_portfolio/manifest.css stylish_portfolio/manifest.js )
