Rails Notes: Make Dropdown Work on Heroku

Posted by Lawrence Sun on 2014-10-26

After I deployed a app on Heroku, I found that the Bootstap dropdown menu didn’t work on Heroku. It was working in my local development environment.

So I searched the answers from stackoverflow. It seemed that it was a common problem.

I had tried to reorder the //=jquery and //=bootstrap and reorder back again and again. I also ran asset precompile method. However, it still didn’t work in my situation.

Then I compared an app I wrote before, and I found that there might be the conflict between ‘bootstrap’ and ‘bootstrap-spockets’. The dropdown menu worked if either of them were removed. So I removed ‘bootstrap’ finally. I am not sure if it will cause any further problems but so far it’s fine.
