binary files are attempted to be pre compiled as erb

Reported by Roger | October 7th, 2008 @ 10:16 PM | in 2.x

With edge rails, I get the following error when trying to compile binary files which are in the views directory:


Here's one I get [fatal]:

Possible fix: rescue and ignore?

    seems to be a temporary fix. Better might be to only erb compile .rhtml or .html.erb files :)

    Is there a good reason why you don't put this static content in /public/simplegrey2/original/grey2/din_mittle.swf

    Putting it inside /app/views makes rails deal with it, putting it in public makes the web server deal with it.

    Basically, if you don't need rails to handle it, stick it in public, otherwise you are wasting valuable mongrel/whatever time dealing with stuff that apache/nginx is better at shifting.

    Nope. I was just pointing out a difference ["gotcha"] between 2.1 and edge. If it's a good gotcha then I guess leave it in there ? I'm not sure :)
