I want, from a controller, to render a
view that includes another js file from the
#= require doc_ready
Why a view rendered by a controller instead of a static asset?
Because I want to refer to the file through an absolute url, that doesn't changes. Rails 4.0 only compiles assets with a digest like
and I want to use the same url (and possibly expire the cache file based on time), even if I make changes to the script.
Why an absolute url?
Because I want to use the script externally on another website, and the code I give to the webmaster of that site mustn't change.
Why do I want to include another js from the assets?
- To keep the code DRY
- To require a simple library that simulates the jquery ready event, used to create widgets on the page that included the script.
Can I achieve that by making a controller action that renders a
view, which compiles and includes other needed js files from the library, just like sprocket does when compiling assets?
