Including local (JS and CSS) files in local Sinatra Development

I've been trying out Sinatra on my local Windows machine. I want to include some local CSS and JS files. This is how the code looks in layout.erb

<script src="jquery.js" type="text/javascript">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="reset.css" type="text/css" /> 

All my files are in the same folder as app.rb

This is my app.rb

require 'rubygems'
require 'sinatra'

get '/' do
  erb :index

For some reason, I cant see these files included in my pages. When I view the source code and click on the file(JS/CSS) I see that - "Sinatra doesn't know this ditty"- error.

What am I doing wrong here?


Move your static files(css/js) into a folder named public. Sinatra looks there with default settings.

If you want to change that behaviour have a look at this: Static Files

By default Sinatra will look for static files in your public folder. You just need to make a folder called public in the same directory as your Ruby file, and place your JS and CSS files there.

Is the keystore the actual certificate, or is the alias the certificate?
