Modern Webpack template on Rails 5.1
I have downloaded this Adminator template, which is modern npm/yarn Webpack theme. As stated in the template's homepage, install instructions are:
> git clone https://github.com/puikinsh/Adminator-admin-dashboard.git adminator > cd adminator > npm install > npm run dev
And it is working like a charm.
Now my question is, how can I implement it to Rails 5.1+? Should I use webpack support when creating a new app:
> rails new myapp --webpack
Template contains a folder
assets should that whole folder to
npm install to install node_modules?
But those are not any components, I think it should be rather placed in
/vendors folder, right?
I think you're right for the most part. I believe you could just move those assets folders into
You could probably put it in the
vendor folder since you wouldn't really want to edit these files, but that may just require you to import the files into webpacker a bit differently.
You might have to say like
import X from '../../vendor/assets/index or whatever. It'll take some experimenting.
I think the
vendor folder is the ideal so you aren't tempted to edit any of those files to make updating to newer versions of the template easier. That said, don't let that stop you if you can get it working in
