Why Rails Asset Caching is Broken Jump to Story

The current implementation of Rails asset caching, in some cases, is broken. Firstly, many proxies do not cache resources whose URL contains query string parameters, by default. Second, if your application runs across multiple servers, you may be reporting different time stamps for each installation, depending on the server which generated the HTML. However, the Asset Fingerprint plugin by Elliot Sykes aims to fix this by generating URLs based on a hash of the file content.
