  • GitHub repo Doorkeeper

    Project mention: Need help implementing PKCE flow in Doorkeeper | | 2021-09-22

    Are there any code examples to implement the PKCE flow in Doorkeeper? I am a bit confused on how to implement it here:

  • Nanos

    Run Linux Software Faster and Safer than Linux with Unikernels.

  • GitHub repo react-on-rails

    Integration of React + Webpack + Rails + rails/webpacker including server-side rendering of React, enabling a better developer experience and faster client performance.

    Project mention: Best project setup for Rails+React with "remember me" feature | | 2021-10-16

    The problem is I have no idea how to implement the "remember me" feature in that gem without just making the tokens not refresh for a very long time (I think that would be a security concern). So then I looked more into react_on_rails to just use sessions with Devise as a normal rails app, but I don't know if I'll be able to deploy that on AWS because of the changes I have to do to the webpacker/webpack config to allow for a better folder structure. I've never done that so I don't know if there may be any issues.

  • GitHub repo rails_panel

    Chrome extension for Rails development

    Project mention: Rails 6 with Webpacker 6, Tailwind 2 with JIT, Postcss 8 and some default setup | | 2021-08-15

  • GitHub repo Koala

    A lightweight Facebook library supporting the Graph, Marketing, and Atlas APIs, realtime updates, test users, and OAuth.

    Project mention: How to evaluate a 3rd party RESTful API? | | 2021-11-26

    Listen Notes is both an API vendor and a customer of other APIs. We provide a popular podcast API to more than 3,300 companies and developers (as of Nov. 2021). Meanwhile, we also use a bunch of 3rd-party APIs ourselves (e.g., Stripe, Braintree, Cloudflare, Stop Forum Spam, Amazon SES, Google Speech-to-Text API, reCAPTCHA, Rollbar, Datadog, Twitter API, Facebook API, Slack API, and more). As you can see, without using 3rd-party APIs, we couldn't build Listen Notes as a tiny team (read more: The boring technology behind a one-person Internet company).

    Project mention: Anyone using elasticsearch-rails? contingency plans? | | 2021-08-09

    Scheduler / Cron for Sidekiq jobs

    Project mention: How can I schedule a job to be executed in the future ? | | 2021-03-30

    Depending on how far into the future you're planning to, it could be worth storing the datetime you want it executed on a field like perform_work_at within your database. Then use sidekiq-cron to check a few times a day for if the perform_work_at has passed & the work needs to be done.

  • GitHub repo Lol DBA

    lol_dba is a small package of rake tasks that scan your application models and displays a list of columns that probably should be indexed. Also, it can generate .sql migration scripts.

    Prosopite looks cool, it's is similar to, though goldiloader will also rewrite the query to address the N+1 issue. You should be able to use both and verify goldiloader is working by checking that prosopite logs no N+1 queries.

  • GitHub repo hotwire-rails

    Use Hotwire in your Ruby on Rails app

    Project mention: How do you handle views? | | 2021-12-04

    I've been doing that a while until I just got sock of the JS spagetti and often duplicated code and went full on Angular CSR and never looked back. That being said, I've been seeing a lot recently about Laravel's Livewire and Symfony and Ruby on Rail's integration with Hotwire (stimulus+turbo).

  • GitHub repo cable_ready

    Real-time changes in the browser, controlled by server-side Ruby.

    Project mention: The CableReady Language Implementation Project | | 2021-11-28

    While CableReady ships with an impressive number of operations out of the box, users should be able to add their own operations. Admittedly, the method used to dynamically create all of the methods for each operation is the most sophisticated one in our framework, but again, we're here to help.
