About This Episode
ActsAsTenant needed some maintenance so we're going to walk through the steps of refactoring the gem and Rspec test suite
ActsAsTenant is a popular Rails gem for adding multitenancy to your applications. I've been using it heavily in Jumpstart Pro, but the gem hasn't been actively maintained in about a year.
I've forked the gem and begun the process of updating it to work with Rails 6 and higher. I wanted to show you the process of working through an old project like this and getting it up-to-date. Refactoring tests and library code is all key to modernizing a project like this.
