How do I completely remove all references to application.js and application.css in a Rails app?

Problem :

I'm working in Rails 4.2.4 to deploy a very simple Web API. This interface does not require JavaScript or CSS, so the requests for application.js and application.css are just generating log spam and increasing response times. I have tried disabling assets and skipping sprockets, but the pages served by the app continue to reference application.js and application.css, even in my "Hello, world!" controller generated from the Getting Started Guide.

How can I permanently disable references to these non-existent, unrequired files?



Solution :

Modify your ./app/views/layouts/application.html.erb to only have the following content:

<%= yield %>

In other words, remove the <html>, <head>, and <body> tags. There are several other ways to achieve your objective, but this might be the easiest.
