Beyond Canvas

Gem Version License


  1. Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

    gem "beyond_canvas"
  2. Then execute:

    $ bundle install
  3. Restart your server and rename application.css to application.scss or application.sass (in case you prefer to use the sass syntax):

    $ mv app/assets/stylesheets/application.css app/assets/stylesheets/application.scss
  4. Delete all Sprockets directives in application.scss (require, require_tree and require_self) and use Sass’s native @import instead (Here's why?).

  5. Import Beyond Canvas at the beginning of application.scss. Any other styles must be imported after Beyond Canvas to avoid issues:

    @import 'beyond_canvas'
  6. Add the following to application.js:

    //= require beyond_canvas
  7. Run the generator:

    $ rails g beyond_canvas:install

    This will generate config/initializers/beyond_canvas.rb file, used for general Beyond Canvas configuration. Read this wiki entry to get more information about the different configuration options.
