Solution to bootstrap installation failure of rails in Windows Environment


Under Windows environment, rails always fails to install bootstrap, indicating that therubyracer cannot be installed.

This is because the less file used by bootstrap relies on the real-time execution of JS by therubyracer to convert less to CSS, while therubyracer gem has no corresponding Windows version.

Hiran Peiris provides a solution on GitHub, and compiles all DLLs and gems. Now, we can finally use bootstrap under windows.
