How is the Front End of GoRails Built?

Steve Polito asked in General

The new site is screaming fast. I notice that there's no page refresh on almost all requests. Is this View? React? Something else? I'm curious to know how this is done.


It's just Turbolinks as usual. 🤠


Oh dang, didn't realize Turbolinks is that fast. I've only made 2 production apps in Rails, and never realized this happened out of the box. Sick!


Awesome right? It's super fast. Just make sure your Rails requests are fast too. I cache a lot and have it stored in redis (or memcached). That way Rails has even less work to do and can serve up things faster.
