What do public/images have to do with assets?

Or the asset pipeline I’ve got an app that renders images from the asset pipeline but the images under public don’t show


Images that you put in the /public directory don’t go through the pipeline. So when you refer to them in your code, you can just an <img> element and provide the exact path. For example,

<img src="/picture.png">

will render the image file located at /public/picture.png

Hope that helps?
