TIP: If any of you are using validations in devise,
before_create in the user.rb file may not work, and you will get an error.
Therefore, try changing that line in user.rb to
before_validation and you may find that it works.
Quick note here: you'll want to add a conditional check
if self.referral_code.nil? to the make sure you don't re-generate and overwrite the existing referral code in the event a user needs to use the Forgot Password function.
You're correct @Monroe...I was getting an error with
before_create claiming that the referral code already existed
When I try to create the new app using the jumpstart template, I land on this error
insert config/webpack/environment.js The file /Users/ijsemerene/Documents/GitHub/jumpstart/referral_app/config/webpack/environment.js does not appear to exist
Any ideas on how to address it?
