Topic: Difficulties to launch an application in development

Hi all,

I'm new in Ruby on Rails, and I'm trying to take in hand a RoR application that a IT company developped.
I'm trying to launch this application in local (in development environment).

Everything looks ok when I launch the local server (rails server) but strangly, the assets (CSS, JS,...) seem to not being taken into account in web pages, that means that the pages are blank with mimimum content.

Do you have an idea about the problem, or at least give me some advices so that I can figure out what is going on ?

Thanks a lot for your help !
:-)

Re: Difficulties to launch an application in development

You should start off by learning about the asset pipeline - http://guides.rubyonrails.org/asset_pipeline.html . It may simply be that you need to precompile your assets - http://guides.rubyonrails.org/asset_pip … ing-assets .

Since you're new to RoR, reading those Guides cover to cover is a great starting place. http://guides.rubyonrails.org/index.html
Good luck!

Thanks Dana,

I finally get it work, it was due to the fact that I didn't load the seeds, so the application was not totally loaded actually.
But I started to read this documentation, really interesting thanks again.
