    All of the examples I gave use Rails. It's a web app framework that uses Ruby for the backend and Turbo for the default frontend, but it integrates very nicely with a number of other frontend frameworks- Twitch uses React.

    Even as a much smaller team, building Heii On-Call [0] as a lightweight alerting/monitoring/on-call rotations SaaS based on Ruby on Rails has basically been a pleasure!

    And as the article highlights, perhaps the key reason for smooth deployments and upgrades is that the CI testing story is so, so good: RSpec [1] plus Capybara [2] for us. That means we have decently extensive tests of just about all behavior. The few small Rails and Ruby upgrades we've done have gone quite smoothly and confidently, with usually just a few non-Rails gem dependencies needing to be manually updated as well.

    The "microservices" story is where we've pulled in the Crystal programming language [3] to great effect. After dabbling with Go and Rust, we've found that Crystal is truly a breath of fresh air. Crystal powers the parts of Heii On-Call that need to be fast and low-RAM, specifically the inbound API and the outbound HTTP(S) prober background processes. I've ported some shared utility classes from Ruby to Crystal almost completely by just copy-and-pasting ___.rb to; porting the tests for those classes was far more onerous than porting the class code itself. (Perhaps another point of evidence toward the superiority of RoR's testing story...)

    The front-end story is nice but just a bit weaker. Using Hotwire / Turbo successfully, but I have an open PR to fix a fairly obvious stale cache bug in Turbo [4] that has been sitting unloved for nearly a month, despite other users reporting the same issue. I'm hopeful that it will get merged in the next release, but definitely less active than the backend side.

    For me, the key conclusion is that the excellent Ruby on Rails testing story is what enables everything to go a lot more smoothly and have such a strong foundation. I'd be curious if any GitHubbers can talk more about whether they too are using Rspec+Capybara or something else? Are there internal guidelines for test coverage?






  • Show HN: I built developer tooling for the Airtable API that I needed

    It's built using Go and html/template from the standard library.

    For interactivity I wrote some custom JS, I think it's similar to libraries like or, this stuff is inside the application though.

    Let me know if there's anything you were particularly interested in knowing.

  • How to use View Transitions in Hotwire Turbo
    10 projects | | 16 Feb 2023
    So let’s add the following CSS to the index template (Slim recognizes a css: block that just renders a normal tag):
    / app/views/counter/index.html.slim
    / (anywhere outside the Turbo Frame tag)
      /* (1) */
      #counter {
        view-transition-name: counter;
        contain: layout;
      /* (2) */
      @keyframes rotate-out {
        to {
          transform: rotate(90deg);
      @keyframes rotate-in {
        from {
          transform: rotate(-90deg);
      /* (3) */
      ::view-transition-old(counter) {
        animation-duration: 200ms;
        animation-name: -ua-view-transition-fade-out, rotate-out;
      ::view-transition-new(counter) {
        animation-duration: 200ms;
        animation-name: -ua-view-transition-fade-in, rotate-in;
    Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

    Let’s break this code down a bit:

    1. The CSS selector #counter matches the counter div and the view-transition-name property names this area of the screen, for the purpose of View Transitions, as counter. This name will be used in the animation declarations below.

      The clone property currently must be added here for some reasons internal to the current View Transitions implementation in Chrome and must be set to paint or layout. This restriction is planned to be removed from the specification, though, and in fact I’ve heard that it is not needed in Chrome Canary any more.

    2. The rotation animation keyframes are defined here. Note that while the transition also uses fade-in and fade-out animations, they don’t have to be defined here because the spec requires browsers to implement them natively under the name -ua-view-transition-fade-in/out.

    3. The CSS animations for the counter (the View Transition area named counter) are configured here. The CSS selectors here are some of the pseudo-elements automatically created during the transition. The -old pseudo-element represents a screenshot of the old DOM state that should somehow disappear or ”go away“ from the viewport and the -new pseudo-element represents a live version of the final DOM state that should be brought into sight.

    So, overall, this code selects a portion of the page and animates it independently from the rest of the page during Turbo Frames DOM updates. Behind the scenes, the default cross-fade for the rest of the page still also takes place, it just is not visible because all its elements are visually identical. The result looks like this:

    A few initial tips & tricks

    Does this work for Turbo Drive visits, too?

    Sure it does and it’s actually pretty easy! All we have to do is define the same event handler as we did above but attach it to the turbo:before-render event instead. By default we’ll get a cross-fade animation of the whole page during Turbo Drive page visits.

    Do not try to ”name“ the Turbo Frame itself

    When playing with Turbo Frame View Transitions I first tried to use a custom animation for the whole Turbo Frame element by naming it via the view-transition-name property. For some reason, this does not work and you end up with a very cryptic and misleading error message in the console (yes I did have the contain property in the CSS declaration):

    Aborting transition. Element must contain paint or layout for view-transition-name : counter

    So, when using custom animations, an element from inside the Frame must be selected and named.

    Debugging View Transitions

    Since View Transitions are technically just normal CSS animations, they can be inspected with the Animations panel in the Dev Tools. Also, the automatically created pseudo-elements are visible in the Elements tab during the transitions:


    I confess I am quite excited about the new View Transitions API. Among the things I particularly like about it are the following:

    • It is surprisingly easy to plug this inside Hotwire Turbo and you get the default cross-fade transition animation immediately for free (in latest Chrome-like browsers, that is).
    • Since this is implemented natively in the browser, the animations are highly optimized and performant.
    • View Transitions should allow (today or in the future) building highly interactive transitions similar to those in Material Design.
    • There is some initial support for Multi-Page Applications, too, which is great news because we can bring transition animations declared in CSS to our old but gold apps.
    • It should be possible to use a different animation based on the ”direction“ of the visit (Back/Forward) using the Navigation API (also still experimental and not very well supported, though).

    Things I am still concerned about:

    • Browser support: the Firefox team evaluates it, the Safari team is silent. This will be a log run and making a polyfill is probably too difficult. For web sites where transition animations are critical, this is still a no go.
    • If you’re not careful enough, the transition feels more fluid but also a little bit slower. The reason for it is that View Transitions start the animations at the moment when both the old and new DOM states are already rendered. This means that the exit animation is delayed until new content is available and until that time, nothing happens. Also, the entry animations for the new state usually delay its appearance a little bit more.

      This is not a problem of View Transitions themselves but rather a more generic one. If the exit animation (e.g. a fade out) started immediately after user interaction (e.g. a link click), sometimes the user would have to stare at a blank page until the new page content is grabbed, rendered and run through an entry animation. Still, some kind of support for this scenario (possibly with custom loaders or skeletons) would be nice.

    • Tailwind support: I think the current Tailwind syntax does not allow targeting the HTML document-connected pseudo-elements so we have to resort to custom CSS (which is not a big problem, actually).

    • All transitions target the whole page, there is currently no option to make, say, two components (Frames) animate totally independently. An initial proposal for ”scoped transitions“ can be found here.

    Overall, I like this feature and wish it matures enough and gets wider support soon!
