Is there an easy way to you this with the asset pipeline and deploying to heroku / s3?
I would like my local rails app to use image/css/js locally as per normal.
And when you pre-compile, is there an easy way for the production app to serve it's assets from s3 (while dev assets are local). And also when you pre-compile / deploy to heroku, the newly compiled assets are sent up to s3 automatically?
This is so the developer (me :D ) does not have to keep manually updating s3 with the new deployed files?
I believe this is what you're looking for:
Make sure you use up-to-date gems, as this guide is for rails 3.1 (in case you use 3.2+)
