In this lesson, we will look at the various ways we can use the super keyword in Ruby in regard to forwarding method arguments to the equivalent method in a parent class.
Congratulations! We're all done! We now have a fully featured URL shortener that does everything we need plus some cool extras.
In this episode, we will look into the new health check endpoint that will come by default in a Rails 7.1 application.
Once our application has lots of links, it will become impossible to use. Let's add pagination to make our application usable once we have hundreds or thousands of links.
Now that we've got a thorough test suite, we want to make sure tests are run anytime we push code to GitHub. We can setup GitHub Actions to test our code and automatically deploy it when tests pass.
Testing our URL shortener is very important now that we've implemented edit permissions on Links. We want to make sure everything works as expected for each type of user.
Here's how we'd add Users and handle edit permissions for links. See how it compares to your implementation and consider the pros/cons of each approach.
In this lesson, we will look at a new option coming to ActiveJob in Rails 7.1 for enqueuing multiple jobs at once using the perform_all_later class method.
Anyone can add, edit, and delete any Link in our URL Shortener database. Your challenge is to add users, associate links with them and only allow editing of your own links.

How to upgrade to Rails 7.1 This will also work with any other version and offers a few tips on how to test things out and revert back if necessary.

In this lesson, we will look at a new option coming to the rails routes command in Rails 7.1 which will display a list of any routes deemed as unused in your Rails application. Let's see what qualifies a route as unused and learn some other handy tips!
It's time we start cleaning up the design and UI for a better experience with our URL shortener.
Analytics for links is a useful feature so lets record Views for links and show them in a graph
Next, we can build redirecting Short URLs to the URL on the Link
Rails 7.1's new generates_token_for method allows us to build password reset and Magic Link login tokens without storing details in the database. Tokens have expirations and can be one-time use so they can't be reused.
Now that we have Base62 encoding and decoding, we can tell Rails to use this for generating URL params and find
Decoding our Base62 encoded short codes is the next challenge
