RaislsEdge - where to get latest javascripts?


#1

To play with RJS I just made a “rake freeze edge”. But this copies only
the
libs into vendor/rails and any attempt of “rake update_javascripts”
fails.

But all the he required javascripts are there, at:
BASEPATH/vendor/rails/actionpack/lib/action_view/helpers/javascripts/

Except of prototype, they seem to have no version number, so I am asking
whether I should take those javascript files from there or checkout the
whole rails trunk and get them form Dir[RAILTIES_PATH +
‘/html/javascripts/*.js’] ?


#2

Except of prototype, they seem to have no version number, so I am asking

“rake update_javascripts” – that’ll give you the latest javascripts
from the current Rails you’re running. And when you’re running edge,
that means edge js.

A quick look at the soure repository shows that the javascripts are from
the
same revison, so now maybe I should change my question: why do we have
the
same set of scripts at two diffferent locations ?

Wups, seems that you already did that. What’s the failure?

Because they need to go in both the Rails package and in the Action
Pack package. Believe it or not, the later can actually be used as a
stand-alone framework :). Not a ton of people are doing that, though.

Action Pack has its own JS so that it can be used independently of
Rails. Running “rake update_javascripts” copies the scripts from
Railties’ html/javascripts/ directory. Both sets of scripts should
always be identical.

thanks, now everything makes sense !

(wow, this is an old thread)

I noticed that “rake update_javascripts” also copies over
application.js. This is disastrous if you already have code in that
file. My opinion is that this should either:

  1. not copy it
  2. ask to overwrite if we have put in something in there other than the
    default contents

This has been fixed in http://dev.rubyonrails.org/changeset/3863
