'Learn Ruby on Rails' Updated for Rails 5.1 09:16 • 7 months ago

I’ve completed the Rails 5.1 update for Book Two of my book series Learn Ruby on Rails.

It’s important to have an accurate and up-to-date tutorial for beginners getting started with Rails. I’ve updated all the code examples in the book for Rails 5.1.

The book shows how to integrate Bootstrap with Rails for layout and styling. Rails 5.1 drops jQuery which is required by Bootstrap so I’ve updated the book to show how to add a jQuery gem and modify the application.js manifest.

In previous editions of the book, I used the SimpleForm gem because I liked the elegance and simplicity of the form helpers in SimpleForm. It made forms a little easier for beginners. However the release of Rails 5.1 broke SimpleForm and it took a few weeks

Successful Kickstarter 08:54 • 7 months ago

On June 5, 2017 we successfully concluded a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to update Rails Composer for Rails 5.1. 122 backers pledged $6,963. I’m always awed at the community support for the project. Thank you!

With support from the community, I will work on a new version of Rails Composer and update the RailsApps example applications for Rails 5.1.

Rails 5.1 requires extensive changes to the RailsApps example applications. All of the example applications use Bootstrap for layout and styling. Bootstrap requires jQuery but Rails 5.1 drops jQuery so we’ve got to add a jQuery gem and modify the application.js manifest to restore the jQuery dependency.

In Rails 5.1, the familiar form_for and form_tag helpers are

Learn Enough CSS & Layout to Be Dangerous 00:00 • 7 months ago

We've just launched the Learn Enough CSS & Layout to Be Dangerous ebook!

At ten chapters and over 500 pages of content, Learn Enough CSS & Layout to Be Dangerous is the most ambitious Learn Enough tutorial yet.

As a special launch discount, for the next week you can get the ebook for only $19 (regular price $24). Every purchase includes all three common ebook formats (PDF, EPUB, MOBI/Kindle).

Learn Enough CSS & Layout to Be Dangerous teaches not only Cascading Style Sheets, the design language of the World Wide Web, but also the often-neglected complementary subject of page layout.

No other front-end development tutorial puts everything together in quite the same way. By the end, you'll be able to design, build, and deploy a full, industrial-

Kickstarter for Rails Composer 05:44 • 9 months ago

At the end of April I was invited to speak about Rails Composer at the RubyHACK conference in Salt Lake City. Half the audience already knew about Rails Composer and everyone was very enthusiastic. Judging from the response, Rails Composer has become a popular tool for Rails developers.

After the conference, RubyHACK participant Ian Mercaldi wrote a great blog post on “Starting New Apps With Rails Composer”.

The Kickstarter Campaign

Rails 5.1 is out and I’d like to update Rails Composer to include JavaScript frameworks:

  • React
  • Angular
  • Vue.js

I’d like to ask you to contribute to the Kickstarter campaign to update Rails Composer for Rails 5.1 and add options for JavaScript frameworks. In 20

Books I Liked In 2016 Part Two 01:49 • 11 months ago

Here’s part two of my 2016 “Books I Liked List”. This is the list of books I really, really liked, for the list of books I just liked one “really” worth, head here. All the book titles like to the Kindle edition of the book, so enjoy.

All The Birds in the Sky by Charlie Jane Anders

I really did like this book quite a bit, though not as much as other people: you’ll find several online lists that have it as the best or one of the two or three best books of the year. (It was also one of three books on both these lists to be nominated for a Nebula Award for best Novel.) (Though now that I think about it, we’ve also got a Novella nominee in here.)

The book features two characters, he’s basically a mad scientist, she’s basically a magician. They meet in middle school, bond

Books I Liked in 2016, Part 1. 03:24 • 12 months ago

Books 2016: Part One

This is part one of my “books that made me happy in 2016”. As usual, we’re doing this in two parts. This one is the books I liked, the next post is the books I really liked.

I had a hard time separating the list this year, there were a lot of likable books, so there are kind of a lot here. In alphabetical order by title.

Act Like It by Lucy Parker

I went back and forth about whether to include this in the list, it’s a little “one of these things is not like the others”, but ultimately I decided I did really like it and who cares. Anyway, this is a straight out romance novel, a romantic comedy basically, featuring a cranky London West End leading man and his much nicer co-star. They are asked to pretend to be dating to prevent tabloid gossip. And

Learn Enough Dev Environment to Be Dangerous 00:00 • 12 months ago

We've just released Learn Enough Dev Environment to Be Dangerous, a free tutorial on setting up a proper environment for doing software development.

In addition to being available online, the ebook downloads are free as well.

For those who prefer the convenience of direct delivery to their Kindle, we've made the tutorial available for Amazon's minimum $0.99 purchase price here.

At around 20 pages, Learn Enough Dev Environment is short and sweet—a great complement to the other Learn Enough tutorials, the Ruby on Rails Tutorial, and the Learn Enough Society.

While Learn Enough Dev Environment to Be Dangerous covers easier setup options like cloud IDEs and virtual machines, I especially recommend it for macOS and Linux users who are ready for the
