Great episode Chris! This really makes me want to dive into more source code, I admit that I'm always hesitant to do it


Hi Chris,
I've been struggling with the idea of combining ActiveStorage and a rich-text editor. Do you have any suggestions? I planned to use Ckeditor and it's not working yet. I've defined the active_storage.rb inside app/models/active_storage.rb and added some custom codes to use ActiveStorage instead of some other like Paperclip, Carrierwave, Dragonfly, etc that Ckeditor 's already supported. The problem is the uploader is not working through ActiveStorage yet.
