Difficult choice indeed. Ready to discuss this in public? What parts do you consider in the decision?

Posted in Is Ruby on Rails still relevant in 2023 ?

it depends...

Posted in How to upgrade to Rails 7.1 Discussion

Liked the quick tips. Curious to see the next.

Also documented some general concepts and references on blog beginning this year:

This seemed to break, updated to:

.then(html => { target = Turbo.renderStreamMessage(html) }

For Bootstrap, which might be outdated..:

<%= select_tag nil, options_for_select(items, request.path), class: "d-md-none", onchange: "Turbo.visit(this.selectedOptions[0].value)" %>

<div class="d-none d-md-block">
  <ul class="nav">
    <% items.each do |text, path| %>
      <li class="nav-item"><%= link_to text, path, class: "nav-link" %></li>
    <% end %>

Seems to be more of these link spam posts lately...

Perhaps constructive for future readers, here's a Trello example with Turbo, Stimulus and Sortable, to work with multiple nested resources (:compitems/:lists):

This worked for me:

Start with removing jquery-ui:

yarn remove jquery-ui

Posted in cloudflare vs cloudfront vs ?

Hey Chris,

I've many images on S3 with avg size of 30KB per img that take about 1-2 seconds to display. I'm looking at cloudfront & cloudflare to speed this up. Later perhaps imgix, but I see it as too costly now.

Which one is a good choice? What should I look at besides pricing for my decision?

Posted in SQL for search

Hi Chris,

I had a question, solved it, now I'm looking for your feedback. For readability I use `a` in the example below:

a = params[:query]
Item.where("name ILIKE ? OR tagline ILIKE ? OR details ILIKE ?", "%#{a}%", "%#{a}%", "%#{a}%")

Do you have a similar query on gorails search for episode titles and forum thread titles?

Your pseudo code works out of the box :)

First tried it with counter cache, that works. But your method seems more elegant. And it also works.

Hey Chris,

I have an item model which gets submitted. With

has_many :comments, as: :commentable, dependent: :destroy

then in the comment model I have

belongs_to :commentable, polymorphic: true
has_many :comments, as: :commentable

I probably have to do something with recursion

(as discussed here: )

Someone said: but that is only 1 level deep as far as I can see.

Please advise
