easyxdm-rails is a new Ruby gem that allows you to easily include the easyXDM javascript library in your application.

For those who want to go straight to the code, you can find easyxdm-rails on Github


Add this to your Gemfile:

gem 'easyxdm-rails'

bundle install 

Then you can add this to one of your js manifest files (like app/assets/javascripts/application.js)

//= require easyXDM

config.assets.precompile += %w( easyXDM.js )
