Neat episode!

Posted in How to build a wizard

FWIW. I have since built a SPA type approach for this that works really well, and the data is not stored in session which has it's own benefits.

This said, I think an episode or even a series on this would be great. There are a ton of really interesting ways to do wizards, and there are a ton of reasons why an app would need one.

IIRC I put the alert in the controller, for example, on create.

Just cloned the repo and am running into the same issue:

irb(main):001:0> client
Traceback (most recent call last):
        2: from bin/console:21:in `<main>'
        1: from (irb):1
NameError (undefined local variable or method `client' for main:Object)

If I set as an instance variable: @client = ENV["VULTR_API_KEY"])


irb(main):002:0> @client
=> #<Vultr::Client:0x000000012232a730 @api_key=nil, @adapter=:net_http, @stubs=nil>

Hi Samantha O. Wondering if you ever figured out how to set this up? I am just now looking into setting up a wizard and am curious about using stimulus vs. wicked, etc. Any guidance/thoughts would be amazing. Thanks!

Posted in How to build a wizard

I third this. All in favor say aye?

Edit: After a lot of “trying to wrangle together” a complex wizard using wicked, I finally gave up and built my own. Pretty happy with the outcome (so far.) would still love to see both with wicked (more complex than scoping to user) and rolling your own.

Also ran into this issue. When converting to an instance variable, this worked. @stephen, did you run into any errors after this? Or were things successful for you?


Attempting to use the following gem in a new rails application:

Main reason is that the new supported tailwind gem that you can install directly with a new build does not seem to allow for plugins: @tailwindcss/forms for example.

Added the following:


Tried both the default: import { Application } from "@hotwired/stimulus" and the below:

// Start StimulusJS
import { Application } from "stimulus"

const application = Application.start();

// Import and register all TailwindCSS Components
import { Alert, Autosave, Dropdown, Modal, Tabs, Popover, Toggle, Slideover } from "tailwindcss-stimulus-components"
application.register('alert', Alert)
application.register('autosave', Autosave)
application.register('dropdown', Dropdown)
application.register('modal', Modal)
application.register('tabs', Tabs)
application.register('popover', Popover)
application.register('toggle', Toggle)
application.register('slideover', Slideover)

Added a controller: rails g controller static home

Changed routes to Static#home

Added the alert example to app/views/static/home.html.erb

<div class="fixed inset-x-0 top-0 flex items-end justify-right px-4 py-6 sm:p-6 justify-end z-30 pointer-events-none">
  <div data-controller="alert" class="max-w-sm w-full shadow-lg rounded px-4 py-3 rounded relative bg-green-400 border-l-4 border-green-700 text-white pointer-events-auto">
    <div class="p-2">
      <div class="flex items-start">
        <div class="ml-3 w-0 flex-1 pt-0.5">
          <p class="text-sm leading-5 font-medium">
            Stimulus is the JS of the future!
        <div class="ml-4 flex-shrink-0 flex">
          <button data-action="alert#close" class="inline-flex text-white focus:outline-none focus:text-gray-300 transition ease-in-out duration-150">
            <svg class="h-5 w-5" viewBox="0 0 20 20" fill="currentColor">
              <path fill-rule="evenodd" d="M4.293 4.293a1 1 0 011.414 0L10 8.586l4.293-4.293a1 1 0 111.414 1.414L11.414 10l4.293 4.293a1 1 0 01-1.414 1.414L10 11.414l-4.293 4.293a1 1 0 01-1.414-1.414L8.586 10 4.293 5.707a1 1 0 010-1.414z" clip-rule="evenodd"/>

I am up for using something other than tailwind-stimulus-components. I mainly would like to use the tailwind ui components from this: in a new rails application

You likely figured it out already, but possibly this will help others: restart your terminal and you should see 3.0.2

I am seeing an odd error (at least odd to me, and I have spent a good portion of the day trying to figure this out to no avail:

I run on local: cap production deploy

Deployment starts, but at deploy:migrate, I have an issue:

Ok. I am ... an idiot unless I have 5-cups of coffee in me and I take breaks after 10+hrs staring at a computer monitor.

I had two setups for the following when I should have only had one. One was directed to: myapp (literal) and myapp (my actual app). And I directed the IP to my actual IP address instead of
nano ~/myapp/.rbenv-vars

Thanks for the workaround. Worked for me.
