Public folder (images, javascript) on Amazon's Cloudfront

Hi,

as the subject says I am currently considering to move all resources
I already googled for some best practices, but haven't found much.
However, despite that Cloudfront
is quite new, I think that many Rails developers have thought about
doing this.

As always thankful for any tips, tricks and suggestions.

Maybe it is interesting for other Rails beginners. The solution is
pretty easy and straight-forward. Just
go to the production environment and there is a line:

# Enable serving of images, stylesheets, and javascripts from an asset
server
config.action_controller.asset_host = "http://
assets.example.com"

That's it!

Is there a script to update cloudfront when i update the app on the
production server? I want to keep it synched. I looked at clcurl.pl
seemed overly complicated for what i was looking for.

I know it's a little late in the game, but I had the same thought, and
wrote up a pretty simple plugin to do this for you:
