Heroku Asset Packager Jump to Story

Matthew Savage released a new plugin over the weekend called Heroku Asset Packager. It wraps the asset packager plugin by Scott Becker, redirecting the generated files to the app tmp directory - due to Heroku's read-only filesystem limitations - and then provides you with a middleware to intercept and re-route those asset requests. It makes using an asset packager on Heroku simple, painless, and nearly invisible.
