do you see the message "Restarting nginx nginx" when you type "sudo service nginx restart" ? In my case I don't see it and Chris said that something gonna be wrong if you don't see it.

Hi Chris, when I do sudo service nginx restart it doesn't show anything, you say that this might be an error, I did sudo tail /var/log/nginx/error.log but I can't see any error there! this is the output :

by the way when I opened /etc/nginx/nginx.conf the first time, I haven't find the lines passenger_ruby and passenger_root

Posted in Sharing Data With Javascript Discussion

do you don't know that coffescript compiles to javascript and coffeescript is limited by what javascript can do? if you don't like coffeescript just take the generated javascript and work with :) and if you don't know coffeescript yet you have to know that it will be more easier for you to transform your code from coffeescript to ECMA 6 than the "actual" javascript to ECMA 6 ! only when you know coffeescript well you will know how powerful and beautiful the language is. another thing is that so many people use that "language", and the community is large, so you will always find ways to switch if someday you want to... the only problem I can see here is if you don't have time to understand that "very easy to learn" language (and frankly I was always nervous about coffeescript before I learn it, so I can understand you)

Posted in Manage Assets With Rails Assets Discussion

That's awesome, Thank you Chris I never thought a such thing exists... But does this work for all libraries ? after watching the video I tried rails-assets-ckeditor but it seems that I am getting errors like ActionController::RoutingError (No route matches [GET] "/lang/en.js"): ........

This episode is more clear, I can see why you had that performance problem, your solution is the best in this case, but I think I know why step.course does trigger the database each time because I deal many times with eager loading in the past! let's imagine you only eager load "steps" like this @course.sections.includes(:steps) , in this case the requests are : 1- it fetch * from sections where the course_id equal then 2- it fetch * from steps for **each** section (but it doesn't fetch the course for each step, so just I may told you before, if you do steps: :product which I now it's redundant and inefficient because you already have @course then you will not have the performance problem); I don't know if my explanation is clear but in general : steps are loaded for each section, so: @course.sections.find(3).steps or even @course.sections.find(3).steps.find(5) will not trigger the database, but if you try to do the inverse and access @course from a step then obviously it will trigger the database. I hope I am not confusing this time!

sorry that I was not be able to understand :( it may be clearer for me if I can see how the controller handle that, but you don't have to record the video again if I am the only one who don't understand, you can wait until seeing what others say! :)

I watched the video again trying to understand... what I understand from you is that you already had @course in the controller but you didn't use until discovered the performance issue ! also you loaded sections, steps and privacy through the course. What I was saying is if you eager load the course through the step it will not produce that problem.

Hi Chris, this issue is called N+1 problem and one of the ways to face it is by doing "eager loading" because sometimes you still need to use your step object in the view, so in the controller it's just simple as doing something like that : @steps = Step.all.includes(:course), you can even go deeper : I don't remember the syntax exactly but it's something like that steps.all.includes(course: [:other, :category, ....]), sometimes when you need more complex query you should use join instead of includes... I had the issue a long time ago when I wanted to implement an activity feed where every post has to bring the author and the comments for that post and also the users who write the comments...

Kohl Kohlbrenner to eliminate subdomains like www and admin I do something like this : Account.find_by(subdomain: request.subdomain) if (request.subdomain.present? && !["www", "admin"].include?(request.subdomain))

Also you don't have to tell your routes that you are using subdomains, the web server know about your url and it's enough to get the subdomain by using the "request" object which is provided by Rails.
