I need to work in Ruby on rails project as a front-end developer and I have never worked with Ruby before. I want to automate many things in my project like
- Sass Compass output to css,
- Minification, uglification and concatenation of my JS and CSS,
- Image optimization,
- Font/SVG icon generation,
- SVG optimization,
- CSS Sprite generation
- and many more things
I want to know that Is it possible to do similar (above mentioned) things with Rails Asset pipeline too? or I'm right that Grunt.JS is much powerful now and will be more in future, than Asset pipeline.
Can we use both Asset pipeline and Grunt in same project?
And is there any cons and pros for RoR project to replace asset pipeline with Grunt?
