Provides asset-pipeline integration with the ratpack framework.



Ratpack Asset-Pipeline

MOVED: This project has moved to a sub project of the main asset-pipeline repository

This module provides runtime for both development and production to the Ratpack framework for rendering files compiled by Asset-Pipeline. This should be paired with the asset-pipeline-gradle plugin appropriately

NOTE: Version 2.3.0 has resulted in a change of config and asset location. Please read the documentation below if needing to upgrade.

buildscript {
  repositories {
  dependencies {
    classpath 'com.bertramlabs.plugins:asset-pipeline-gradle:2.4.3'
    //Example additional LESS support
    //classpath 'com.bertramlabs.plugins:less-asset-pipeline:2.3.0'

apply plugin: 'asset-pipeline'

dependencies {
	compile 'com.bertramlabs.plugins:ratpack-asset-pipeline:2.4.3'
	//Example additional LESS support
    //provided 'com.bertramlabs.plugins:less-asset-pipeline:2.3.0'

Also add the Module to your registry

import asset.pipeline.ratpack.AssetPipelineModule;

bindings {
  module new AssetPipelineModule()

Or if you want to configure the module

import asset.pipeline.ratpack.AssetPipelineModule;
import ratpack.config.ConfigData;

bindings {
  ConfigData configData = ConfigData.of().sysProps().build()
    moduleConfig(new AssetPipelineModule(), configData.get(AssetPipelineModule.Config))

Now you could for example change the less compiler mode with the system property -Dratpack.assets.less.compiler=standard

In your src/assets folder create organizational subfolders i.e. src/assets/javascripts or src/assets/stylesheets.

You can reference these files in your html templates via /assets/application.js. The md5 url replacement work is still in progress as Ratpack spec gets finalized.

Serving from Custom Mapping

You can optionally add this handler to your handler chain and give it a prefix path to filter for on assets. For example, if you want the asset-pipeline to serve assets at the root level simply do this:

import asset.pipeline.ratpack.AssetPipelineHandler;

handlers {
  bindings { ... } //Dont forget to still register the module
  get {
    render groovyMarkupTemplate("index.gtpl", title: "My Ratpack App")


Things to be Done

  • Url replacements for templates
  • Testing
