Just refer to it like you would any other JS file. Rails doesn't come
into the issue really.

Best,

Ok, then I'm still not sure how to add them. I included them in the
public/javascript/ directory and i'm not sure how to tell ruby to use
them in the application.html.erb file.

Please quote when replying.

Do you know how to include references to JavaScript files in HTML in
general?

Best,

Yes, barely, but i thought with rails that you had to include it in the
application.html.erb file here <%= javascript_include_tag :defaults,
then add whatever you need here %> but i'm not sure what the syntax to
add an additional javascript library is.

Again: please quote when replying!

OK, then go review your basic HTML syntax. Use of <script> tags is
elementary and you should have no trouble with it.

Not unless you want it on every page. It can go anywhere you like, as
long as it shows up in the generated HTML where you want it to.

In other words: here as in other Web development, think about what you
want in the generated HTML and work backwards from there.

here <%= javascript_include_tag :defaults,
then add whatever you need here %> but i'm not sure what the syntax to

See the docs for the javascript_include_tag method.

Hello Mark,
I think Facebooker is your choice:

Find it here: https://github.com/mmangino/facebooker

The API documentation: http://facebooker.rubyforge.org/

Some tutorials on it: https://github.com/digidigo/facebooker-tutorial

Check this: http://apps.facebook.com/facebooker_tutorial/ (for me
currently it's not working...)

Important: wanted to buy a book about if from PragProg, but they said
it ouf of date, so don't buy it! :wink:

Write me in private, if you find other/better resource, I'm also
interested in it.
Good luck,
Zoltán

It may be, but the OP is asking a different question.

Yes i am, and i'm using a different gem called Koala.

I wanted something a bit easier to work with than facebooker. the only
downside to koala is that it makes you do some things manually. Which is
why i need facebook's javascript SDK.
