Fixture design in TDD can be a bit of an art. You don't necessarily need a fixture for every possible variation. Focus on essential scenarios and edge cases. If variations impact behavior significantly, create fixtures for them. It's about finding a balance between thorough testing and avoiding over-engineering. It's a judgment call, but don't hesitate to refine fixtures as your tests evolve. Happy coding!

It sounds like a common issue. Make sure nothing else is using port 3000, like another Rails server. Also, check your firewall settings; sometimes that can block local connections. Good luck! 😊
I had this too. Make sure to warm up your app before deploying, and check your database connection pool settings. It helps prevent those annoying cache errors during deploys.
Managed hosting, like Cloudways, can be a smart choice for an ecommerce store. It offers a balance between control and ease of use. Plus, you get the advantage of expert support for performance and security. It's worth considering!
That's awesome news! Thanks for the update. Keeping the content current is so important, especially when it comes to frameworks like Omniauth. Excited to check it out!

The cost of a Ruby on Rails web app can vary a lot. It depends on features, complexity, and who you hire. Getting multiple quotes is a smart move to gauge pricing. Good luck with your project!
I totally agree! Rails 7.1's authentication updates are a game-changer. authenticate_by is a lifesaver for cleaner code, and generates_token_for makes things smoother. Can't wait to dive in!
Deploying two different apps on the same server is totally doable, especially if they have low usage and aren't too resource-intensive. Since you're using HatchBox, you can simply create a new app and deploy it to the same server without any special setup.
