I'd donate if there was a paypal options.  Not too keen on putting in my credit card to a random site, no matter how trustworthy I *think* you all might be.

Nice looking pop-up box though.

Hi all!

Just wanted to announce a big update we made to Rails Assets

For those who haven't used it before, Rails Assets takes Bower components and packages them up as Ruby gems, to ease some of the pain of getting bower components working on Rails projects. No longer do you have to copy/paste javascript and CSS to your vendor directory, and then manage updating it yourself. You don't even need to learn bower! Just go to Rails Assets, type in the name of the bower component, and pull it in as a gem.

We revamped the user experience so that it should be MUCH easier to find the components you're looking for and get them working in a Rails app. Here's some release notes:
* Completely new search interface
* Each component now has its own page
* Very clear instructions on how to install a component
* Dramatically improved interface for choosing a version other than the latest
* Ability to link to component pages directly
* Ability to link to search results directly

As always, please hit us up with feedback!

PS: We're accepting donations at now as well. If you find this useful, even a few dollars helps us keep it running!
