using //= require statemements in application.js

Using require statements in application.js should reference files located where?
//= require bootstrap-sprockets
where is bootstrap-sprockets supposed to be located?

Hi

That doesn’t seem to be an answer to my question

Using require statements in application.js should reference files located
where?
//= require bootstrap-sprockets
where is bootstrap-sprockets supposed to be located?

If you have included the appropriate gem in Gemfile then you don't
need to put it anywhere.

I’m sorry yes it does answer my question, somewhat, thanks

Thanks, Colin So then why require them if they’re all “gemmed out”? I’m having trouble getting data-description to work in bluimp-image-gallery If you read the docs it can be found under Additional Gallery Elements The docs say to include links to javascript scripts at the bottom of my view using <script src= … So that’s what I did Seemed the javascript in question wasn’t working so when I asked for help someone asked me if I was using the asset pipeline and then if i’m using the asset pipeline why am i putting the links to javascript scripts <script src= … in my views and the discussion ended up concluding just about there after trying to get clarification Here’s a gist of the files involved https://gist.github.com/mices/f9516cb3ea9da3f3c690 ~ thanks, fugee

Not sure what you mean by gemmed out.
I believe that you should either require it in application.js (in
which case it will be compiled in with the other js files) or
specifically include it in the page using the script tag. The former
is generally preferred as it means the browser should only load the js
once for the whole website. I have not used this particular library
though so don't know whether there is a reason why it should be
explicitly loaded in the page.

Bootstrap’s working, image gallery’s working So, this is not the problem anyway The problem is i can’t get the contents of data-description to display with the full image in the lightbox, which as it happens is the job of one js file I was thrown a curve with this question that was posed to me about the asset pipeline, but i’m very glad that you clarified that for me Also, if I add controls to the gallery widget, then the title displays in the full image lightbox view, as long as I pass a value to title in my view I’ve tried using static content for the data-description but that didn’t make any difference ~ thanks, fugee
