This is turning into a little series for me! I am loving moving things out of my erb files and into Stimulus controllers. It is cleaning things up and making things faster. Win-win!
I’ve been using Chartkick for years, but upgrading to Rails 7 made me take a look at how I’d been trapping Chartkick events and upgrade it to work with Stimulus. I am talking about trapping the clicking on a chart and using it as a kind of filter for the associated data.
While we are in the middle of upgrading Zonmaster to Rails 7 we took a long look at Datatables and decided it was time to move on. In this video, I’ll go over using Tabulator (https://tabulator.info/) in a Ruby on Rails 7 app.
In this video, I go over the process behind taking an ancient Rails app (started 16 years ago!) and upgrading it to Rails 6. I do summarize a lot here, so if you’d like to see a video about a specific facet please let me know!
This time I look at the Sorbet gem that offers type-checking for your Ruby app. And by extension – ha ha – your Ruby on Rails app
In this video, I take a look at the pretty darn cool AWS service called Cloud9 – an IDE in the cloud! Here I cover how to get it going and use it for Ruby on Rails development (though it works for all kinds of languages!) I think it’s a neat way to get discreet, […]
In this video, I take the Contractometer project from earlier lessons and integrate it with Travis for Continuous Integration (i.e. auto-building and testing). https://travis-ci.com What is continuous integration anyway? Essentially, you check your code into a central repository (i.e. Github) and automated building is done to see if your code can run, and tests are […]
Sometimes (read: always) you will need to debug your Ruby on Rails application. In this video, I cover some of the gems and methods you can use to do that!
In this video, I take a real, live Rails (5) app and switch it from using MySQL to using Postgres. Of course, most of this is not about switching it is about moving the data from one database to the other. I show you how to do that. I’ll be using Docker to quickly host […]
In this episode I tackle (kind of) a question put forward by a viewer on another video – handling the showing of duration in Rails. To do that I create a new Rails6 app and plug in Stimulus.js, Hotwire/Turbo and Bootstrap5.
