Finding GoRails is a Godsend. These videos are SO fascinating. Not only do I get step by step guidance adding a new feature, but I learn so much in the process. First I watch the entire videos straight through at 1.25 speed to get the gist and make sure I understand everything. Then I go back again and watch them at normal speed, pausing along the way to implement and test each step. It's really fun! And I get to see a new feature come to life before my eyes. Bravo Chris!

Hi Chris,

Another fantastic tutorial.

a) If we install mailboxer and down the line want to give users the option to add multiple receipients, i.e. a 'private group chat', does mailboxer allow this? If so, this looks like a great option. *UPDATE: I see that video 3 discusses this. *

b) I installed notifications using your other tutorial. Should I use that same line of code here to create notifications in our bell, or is it best to use the mailboxer notifications? Or is it a combination of both?

c) I saw one person ask about how a user can trash/delete messages, but it doesn't appear you've yet responded. Is that covered as well?

Thanks ever so much.

Oh that sounds like a winner! And one I haven't heard of before. Thank you Chris.

I am trying to understand Ruby and Rails as best I can. I've purchased a bunch of ruby on rails books, but am wondering if you have any recommendations. Perhaps there are many I haven't yet read to help me get a better understanding of everything that's going on?

Thank you!
