Rails, React and me – codeburst

  • It uses rails to include only JS and Webpack compiled files which was perfect match for the use case.Figuring solutions is always easy, The difficult part is to figure out the problemReact_on_rails has given the instructions to setup existing rails project so I started with them but ran into many…
  • In this particular case, figuring out the problem became worse as the errors were misleading.The Aha Moment: Devil was in the detailsFinally to figure out the problem I created a sample project from scratch using react_on_rails new project setup instructions and started comparing the generated code with my existing project.
  • This particular information turned out to be crucial to get out of the problem I was facing which I was not aware of at that time.SolutionTo solve this issue just change your API controller to base controller.

Why Rails developers should learn React – Statuscode – Medium

Why #Rails developers should learn #ReactJS:  #JavaScript

  • Since Facebook released it in 2013, React has rapidly grown in popularity among developers — from solo hackers to small startups to large teams, a lot of people are choosing React to build their web and mobile apps.In many ways, React is to the modern frontend, as Rails is to the backend — there are many alternatives, but React has the best combination of simplicity, power and community momentum to make it a great choice.Web UIs have matured a lot over the last decade.
