It looks like this doesn't work in when running in production. The ‘else’ block gets called, and results in this error. It looks like asset_path(path) is returning the full URL.

ActionView::Template::Error: No such file or directory @ rb_sysopen - /app/public/

Edit: Looks like the problem was caused by this line in our production.rb config file. Will leave this comment here for other people in case they have a similar issue.

config.action_controller.asset_host = 'https://' + Figaro.env.domain

You may use below if you have asset hosts configured as cdn
path = "Your asset name", like - home.css, 'public', 'assets', Rails.application.assets_manifest.assets[path]))

Thanks for this! Does it work for scss?
