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 themes.getbootstrap.com.
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
Hi Chris, my theme seems to have ordered things by library/vendor (like one folder per vendor, containing each their own dist, src, gulp files) and my compiled html pages from the theme refer sometimes to their .js or their css files (the compiled ones, aka from their "dist" folders).
Where would you recommend putting the vendor folder containing all those vendors folders then?
Shall I put it under "public", "lib" or "vendor" folder within my app, to be directly called in my .html.erb files when needed?
Thanks a lot for your help as always
