Updating diaspora

Updated: Mon, Jul 11, 2011 - 11:05pm

Okay, I just updated my Diaspora server to the latest code. It's got some fancy updates like a "like" button.

I just wanted to make a quick note on updating it. This probably applies to any Rails app that uses Jammit.

After updating the code, make sure to delete the precompiled javascript and css files. Otherwise, you'll be running the new templates with the old css/js, and things will break.

The built assets live under public/assets. It's okay to delete them. Jammit will rebuild them from public/javascripts and public/stylesheets, based on the specification in config/assets.yml.

I should make sure that this instruction gets onto the Diaspora wiki.

Another quick note: I was finding that, in Firefox, the autoresize jquery plugin wasn't working correctly. It turns out that it was the fault of neither Firefox nor autoresize. It was the fault of the It's All Text firefox plugin I was running. I should make sure that the It's All Text people and the autoresize people are aware of this, but I'm not sure there's anything either of them can do.
