Use in the Rails asset pipeline.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'ngannotate-rails'

And then execute:

$ bundle

That's it! ngannotate-rails integrates seamlessly into the Rails asset pipeline; your JavaScript or CoffeeScript assets will automatically be run through the ngannotate pre-minifier.


The ngannotate-rails version number mirrors the version number for the version of ngannotate that is bundled with it.


  • Q: I installed ngannotate-rails, but my assets aren't getting processed with ngannotate.

    A: Remember to delete tmp/cache/assets or touch all the related asset files so that the cached versions get regenerated. If you've precompiled your assets into public/assets, you'll need to re-precompile them.


Upgrading ngannotate

The actual ngannotate project is bundled into this gem via Browserify. You can update to the latest version of ngannotate via Rake:

rake ngannotate:build

Test Application

There is a Rails 3 application bundled in example/ that you can use to test the asset pipeline integration. Don't forget to remove tmp/cache/assets after upgrading to the latest version of ngannotate.
