How to disable hash in filename when using jekyll-assets

I'm new to Jekyll but so far it's really impressive. The whole asset's pipeline workflow is confusing to me though. In my

config.yaml
file I've got the following:

gems:
- jekyll-feed
- jekyll-assets
assets:
autowrite: true
prefix: "/assets"
digest: true
assets:
- "*.png"
- "*.jpg"
- "*.svg"
sources:
- _assets/_img


All my images are in
/_assets
and so far running
bundle exec jekyll serve
copies all these files into
_site/assets/
thus rendering them at
http://127.0.0.1:4000/assets/
.

The issue is that when it copies, for example,
canlislogo.svg
, it's new filename is
canlislogo-ae5640da3ff77d178133e0ab015ef4aaa0accb025aa955c9c2aeca2ae32fbca9.svg
, adding a long hash. Since I'm using Grunt for all my Stylus css creation, I don't need this hash. In fact, with it, I have no way of referencing these files.

How can I copy the assets automatically but drop the hash?

Please and thank you. :)

Answer

Replacing digest: true with digest: false should remove the hashes.

That said, I'm surprised that asset-name wouldn't be automatically routed to asset-name-#{HASH} by Jekyll?
