Top 18 Ruby JavaScript Projects

  • Discourse

    A platform for community discussion. Free, open, simple.

    Project mention: The discord server is TERRIBLE for asking for help and it makes trying to look for answers to a problem incredibly frustrating | | 2023-03-22

    Depending on how much time and web space they have, Godot may want to implement Discourse as a subdomain of the Godot website?

  • chatwoot

    Open-source customer engagement suite, an alternative to Intercom, Zendesk, Salesforce Service Cloud etc. 🔥💬

    Project mention: Customer support / live chat / ticketing system | | 2023-02-27

    Usually these services are plug and play: you insert a snippet of JavaScript and it just works. If you want an open-source solution you can self-host, there's Chatwoot:

  • InfluxDB

  • Webpacker

    Use Webpack to manage app-like JavaScript modules in Rails

    Project mention: Asset Pipeline JS Migration | | 2023-02-01

    Using Webpacker in Rails provides several advantages over the traditional asset pipeline. First, Webpacker uses JavaScript modules, which allows for better code organization and improved code reusability. Second, it offers modern frontend build tools, such as Babel and PostCSS, for transforming and compiling assets. Third, it provides faster build times and faster runtime performance through code splitting and lazy loading. Fourth, it offers better integration with JavaScript frameworks such as React, Vue, and Angular. Overall, Webpacker offers a more flexible and modern asset management solution for Rails applications. And while Webpacker is being retired, this initiative is to consolidate our code accordingly before moving our bundler to another solution.

  • Opal

    Ruby ♥︎ JavaScript

    Project mention: Launch HN: Pynecone (YC W23) – Web Apps in Pure Python | | 2023-03-13

    So ruby has a JS transpiler - opal -

    I tried using it a little bit but the reality is if you need JS to make your app more interactable it's really worth it to just learn some JS. As soon as you need something complex the extra layer of abstraction just gets in the way and becomes more of a headache, and if you don't need anything complex then you don't need JS in the first place.

  • Zammad

    Zammad is a web based open source helpdesk/customer support system

    Project mention: Jira Service Desk Alternative (Open Source ticketing tool) | | 2023-03-09

    The Redmine fork OpenProject (/r/openproject) is pretty okay for ticketing and Zammad is pretty neat too.

  • dependabot-core

    🤖 Dependabot's update PR creation logic. Feedback:

    Project mention: OCI Helm chat repo with common apps | | 2022-11-02

    I recognize that it does not handle chart updates, but it's might still ease the burden of applying minor releases easily etc. For the chart versions themselves, unfortunately dependabot does not support this and will not, but something like renovatebot does. Could be worth looking into as a dual approach
