How to get the full path image url with carrierwave gem

In this post I’m going to cover how to get the full path url of an uploaded image using carrierwave gem.

By default carrierwave stores the uploaded images at /uploads/model_name/id/image.png

If you request the image url from the database it will only return the /uploads/model_name/id/image.jpg directory.

What if you need the full path ? Like:

The only thing you need to do is to to set the asset_host in your development/production environment:Captura de Tela 2016-06-05 às 07.56.20.png

After that you need to restart your server and now you can get the full path of the image.

Feel free to ask questions and make suggestions 🙂
