When you start to run you newly build applictaion of ruby on rails you can came across the precompilation error.

like: Error ActionView::Template::Error (application.css isn’t precompiled):

ActionView::Template::Error (application.css isn't precompiled):
    2: <html>
    3: <head>
    4:   <title>Myapp</title>
    5:   <%= stylesheet_link_tag    "application", :media => "all" %>
    6:   <%= javascript_include_tag "application" %>
    7:   <%= csrf_meta_tags %>
    8: </head>

This error is very common with the budding rails developer and it has a very simple solution too. To solve this error go to my_app/config/environments/production.rb

config.assets.compile = true

this will solve the purpose.
