#Using Font-Awesome with Rails 3.1 using CSS

  1. Download font-awesome from

  2. Put the font folder in the app/assets. I renamed the folder from font to fonts to make it clearer

  3. Add config.assets.paths << "#{Rails.root}/app/assets/fonts" to config/application.rb. This is to include the apps/assets/fonts folder in the asset pipeline

  4. Put the font-awesome.css file in the app/assets/stylesheets folder

* Calculate the md5 hash of a String
* String $.md5 ( String str )
* </code>
* Calculates the MD5 hash of str using the » RSA Data Security, Inc. MD5 Message-Digest Algorithm, and returns that hash.
* MD5 (Message-Digest algorithm 5) is a widely-used cryptographic hash function with a 128-bit hash value. MD5 has been employed in a wide variety of security applications, and is also commonly used to check the integrity of data. The generated hash is also non-reversable. Data cannot be retrieved from the message digest, the digest uniquely identifies the data.
