Using Sprockets 2 in Rails 3.0.x with CoffeeScript & SASS
View 0_instructions.txt
Some brief instructions on how to use Sprocket 2 in Rails to get CoffeeScript
powered JS and SASS powered CSS with YUI compression all via the magic of rack.
This stuff will be native in Rails 3.1 and the layout of the files on the
filesystem will be different but this guide will get you working with it
while we wait for all that to finalize.
Ignore the number prefixes on each file. This is just to ensure proper order in the Gist.
