Thanks Chris! I'll look into that option. Good to know that Basecamp is using Redis as the cache store. Thanks, I'm really enjoying this performance related series :)

Posted in Russian Doll Caching with Rails 5 Discussion

Hey Chris, thank you for this screencast! Cache toggling feature looks awesome (I just learned it from this video). One quick question, do you recommend Redis over Memcached as a cache store?

Thanks for the reply Patrick! I will definitely check out the article and try using browserify_rails in my Rails app. If I was creating a new Rails app, I will consider using react_on_rails gem but mixing the gem into an existing Rails app seems a bit too difficult. But this approach sounds promising, hope it works nicely with Redux too. I'll definitely keep you posted here in this thread. And it'd be really really awesome if you can get involved in this project :)

I've taken the first Udemy course "Modern React with Redux" and I learned a lot from the course. I didn't know an advanced course came out. Thanks for letting me know!

I'm happy to hear that Jay :) Just an an FYI, I learned a lot of TDD/BDD from Thoughtbot's screencasts (the website is called "Upcase") and book called "Rails 4 Test Prescriptions."

Thanks Jay :) I'm a CS student so I had been writing lot of Python code for school projects before I started learning Rails. I also learned AngularJS(1.x) during the summer break so that experience helped me with learning Rails as well. But I especially loved Rails and went through a bunch of tutorials, watched lots of screencasts and read quite a few books on the subject.
And thanks for watching the videos, it's not as good as Chris's but I'm trying to share what I've learned so far and showcase the project I've been working on with the community.

Thanks Szilard! I'm planning on keeping this open source so that people can take a look at the code and also make pull requests if they want to. I started learning Ruby on Rails in September and have been making apps to practice what I've learned from books and videos. Feel free to contribute, it's a fun side project to work on :)

Let me know if anyone knows how to integrate React + Redux into Rails application :)

I have been working on creating a Medium clone to learn Ruby on Rails. It started out as just a plain Rails app but as the app evolved I started using React in the front end (using react-rails gem). The "react-rails" gem is great, and I was really happy with the gem in the beginning. But then I learned about Redux and learned how to use it with React and I think it's a great solution for managing application level states. I'd love to use Redux in my Rails app but haven't found any good solution to incorporating it with react-rails gem. ( I found "react-on-rails" gem but it seems very heavy and I want to keep the app light weight as much as possible) Do you know any good solution to this? Here's the URL for the app, and Github repo :)

Thanks for another great episode Chris! I love this kind of "little tips and tricks" type stuff. Would love to see more caching and performance related episodes. Thanks for making these screencasts :)

Posted in In-App Messages Between Users Discussion

Thanks for another great episode Chris! I have two questions for you.
Is there a way to make Mailboxer work with ActionCable?

And another question is, what key mapping are you using to escape INSERT mode in vim? I'm mapping "jk" and "kj" to "<esc>" key and I was wondering if there's any other good key mappings for that.

I'm looking forward to the next episode, thanks Chris!

Posted in Sharing Data With Javascript Discussion

Thank you for the video, Chris! I implemented the notification feature by watching the previous tutorial and it works great! But it's tedious to test in the browser because I have to be logged in as two different users. I tried writing Jasmine test and capybara test but I'm a bit stuck. It'd be awesome if you could cover testing for this feature, too. Thanks for the tutorials!!

Thank you so much Chris!! your the man!!

Posted in In-App Navbar Notifications Discussion

This is exactly what I was looking for!! Thank you so much!!! I'd love to see how you integrate React to this feature too.

Thank you Chris! Definitely looking forward to the screencast :)

I've been trying to add a notification system (bell icon on the header) to the app I'm building. The implementation I came up with is very awkward and I'm sure there's a better way to do it (maybe using a background job?). Could you do a quick screencast on how to build a notification system with Rails? I'd like to see how you would go about building one!
