Asset pipeline: Ruby on Rails 5 Essential Training

Asset pipeline is a feature to help manage the stylesheets, JavaScripts, and images used by an application. It concatenates, compresses, and minifies CSS and JavaScript according to the order they are listed in manifest files. It precompiles CSS and JavaScript which allows them to be written in other languages such as Sass and CoffeeScript. It names files with an asset fingerprint as a cache busting technique so that the old, cached version will become invalid if the underlying file changes. Asset pipeline handles assets differently for development and production environments to provide the optimal experience for each situation.
