Javascript file path

Hello,

I googled for it but did not find satisfied answer. Problem is that i
have a javascript file which need to be loaded on only one page. Also, i
am using recursive => true with javascript_include_tag in layout file.

So, what i have done is that i moved javascript file to public directory
and introduced content_for :head functionality into the view which will
pick the script from this public directory.

Question is: How to find javascript file's full path in the view?

Thanks in advance.

If the file is public/path/to/file.js then use the url
/path/to/file.js (note the leading /).

Hello Clan,

Thanks for your reply. Actually i have the js file in "script" directory
not in "public" directory.

Is it ok if i do:- root_url + "/script/file_name.js" ?

If you look at my reply you will see that will look for
public/script/file_name.js. Provided the file is there that will be
ok. Why do not just try it and see?
