In a mission to make my app’s file download more responsive, I had fun integrating John Culviner’s
jquery.fileDownload.js script. John’s samples and setup instructions all target ASP .NET MVC while my app is a Rails 4 app. I thought it’d be a fun exercise to package this script up into a gem much like
jquery-ui-rails packages up jQuery UI for Rails. I’ve named it
jquery_file_download-rails and here are the relevant links:
The GitHub project also contains basic instructions for setting up the gem and the script within a Rails app.
I hope it’s useful to someone.
