im fairly new to Rails and coming from the "Ajax" generation. For me its time to expand my horizon.

So i following a few Tutorials to get into the Ruby on Rails world.


At one point, the all come to the topic "design".

I was using Bootstrap all the time in former projects and was happy to see, that

rails also work with Twitter Bootstrap. BUT, everyone tells me different ways to get it to work.


The first Tutorial said: "You need":

  • extract files from the bootstrap framework package to a specific folder.

The next one say┬┤s

  • install therubyracer gem
  • install less-rails gem
  • install twitter-bootstrap-rails gem

Another one told me:

  • enable sass-rails in the gemfile list and add
  • bootstrap-sass (what seems to be a special rails-bootstrap-variant) gem

and the last one is talking about something that is named "compass" where i never heard from.



The problem is, that i have absolutley no clu of any of these. What is the easiest and most suitable solution to get a simple css-framework to work?

I really hope you can help me, because the difference of tutorials for almost a million different rails-versions and paths annoys me more and more.

Also tagged with one or more of these keywords: bootstrap, therubyracer, lass, sass, compass
