Hi, I'm Chris. I'm the creator of GoRails, Hatchbox.io and Jumpstart. I spend my time creating tutorials and tools to help Ruby on Rails developers build apps better and faster.

About This Episode

Bulk operations like "delete all", "publish all", etc require a little bit of Javascript and a special controller for handling them.


Bulk operations like "bulk delete" or "publish all" are pretty easy to build in Rails. We can use a Stimulus controller to handle the Javascript side of things to manage our "Select All" and check boxes and simply submit those over to Rails. We can also spin up a new controller to keep bulk operations nicely organized and separate from our regular controller.
