Just want to announce my auto_sprite gem which some of you may find handy… It makes using CSS sprites painless. As a bonus - should you remove it some day, it doesn’t break you app, it just reverts to tags…
Full docs are at http://fargle.org/auto_sprite
In a pinch:
- Include the stylesheet in your layout:
<%= stylesheet_link_tag "auto_sprite" %>
Create a directory called sprites in your images directory (e.g.
Put the images you want to link to in your public/images/sprites directory.
Use your images like you normally would:
<%= image_tag ‘sprites/logo.png’ %>
Reload you application and enjoy your now faster website.
