I'm trying to use D3, a javascript data visualization library in my
rails
app. The problem is that I can't figure out where to put the d3.js
source
and my .json data so that rails will serve it.

My problem is in the way d3 issues a GET request when it looks for my
json
and d3.js files.

Things I tried:
- setting up a static pages folder that is served with high_voltage gem.
This didn't work for me as I couldn't get around my application layout
so
it wrapped my js and json in html. I think this is why this didn't work.
- putting the files to be served in the public folder. This didn't work
because it couldn't find the routes for the public folder. I did turn on
config.serve_static_assets in the production enviroment config file.

I feel like this question should have a simple answer as everything
works
perfectly if I put my html, json and d3.js files into a folder and start
a
simple python http server in that folder. I think my problem is in my
understanding of the way rails is trying to serve things.

Thanks,
Ryan
