  • Recurring events, looking for recommendations
    3 projects | /r/rails | 31 Aug 2022
    Hi I've got a project which requires normal one off events, as well as recurring events. Looking at the resources available it seems like there are really just three gems available(montrose, recurrence and ice_cube). Of the three I've had the best results with recurrence because it allows me to pass a hash of arguments to the schedule builder. As well as handling exceptions which montrose doesn't seem to offer.
