Using Purchased Themes with Rails Discussion

Hey Chris, for years, I've been taking templates and just putting them in the app/assets folders instead of going the route of the Vendors folders. Is there a specific reason for going with Vendors over App?



I have an existing site that I wanted to refresh so I purchased a theme from
Here's what I've done so far:

  • unzipped the file
  • copied the 5 folders (css, fonts, images, js, scss) from the theme's assets folder
  • pasted the folders in my rails project folder vender/assets/themes/guidebook/
  • added Rails.application.config.assets.paths << Rails.root.join('vendor') into my initializers/assets.rb file
  • restarted my app but it's obvious that the styles are not there

I'd appreciate any help
