  • Lazy Load Form Fields In Rails Using StimulusReflex
    2 projects | dev.to | 20 Mar 2021
    Some important things in this reflex. One, since our partial requires a form object, we use ActionView::Helpers::FormBuilder to create a form for a user building an initial repository. Since it requires a view_context, we leverage a delegate to access it from the controller. Two, the Octokit client requires a user authentication token, so we add delegate to the connection so we can access the current_user. Three, rather than triggering a full page morph, we instead can use a selector morph so it only updates the div with id #repositories.

    Of course I can. One thing I use is https://github.com/octokit/octokit.rb/ for accessing Githubs API. The other is https://github.com/arangamani/jenkins_api_client for Jenkins
