The Ultimate Search for Rails - Episode 1

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on dev.to

Our great sponsors
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • InfluxDB - Access the most powerful time series database as a service
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • stimulus_reflex

    Build reactive applications with the Rails tooling you already know and love.

    Now that we know that our backend is working as it should, let’s wire up our stuff. I’m gonna skip on Stimulus Reflex setup and configuration and dive right in. You can easily follow the official setup or, if you use import-maps, follow @julianrubisch’s article on the topic. I also know that leastbad has been working on an automatic installer that detects your configuration and sets everything up for you if you care to try it before the next version of SR gets released.

  • SonarQube

    Static code analysis for 29 languages.. Your projects are multi-language. So is SonarQube analysis. Find Bugs, Vulnerabilities, Security Hotspots, and Code Smells so you can release quality code every time. Get started analyzing your projects today for free.

  • all_futures

    A Redis ORM for reactive applications. Quacks just like Active Record. 🦆

    On the backend, we'll need a few tools. Apart from the classics (ActiveRecord scopes and the pg_search gem), you’ll see how the (yet officially unreleased but production-tested) all_futures gem, built by SR authors, will act as an ideal ephemeral object to temporarily store our filter params and host our search logic. Finally, we’ll use pagy for pagination duties.

  • Pagy

    🏆 The Best Pagination Ruby Gem 🥇

  • morphdom

    Fast and lightweight DOM diffing/patching (no virtual DOM needed)

    And sure enough, it works! So what's going on here? Well, clicking the link invokes our reflex, which gets executed right before our current controller action runs again. It allows us to execute any kind of server-side logic, as well as play with the DOM in various ways, but with ruby code. Then, the DOM gets morphed over the wire.

  • beast_mode

    100% server-side rendered faceted search UI demo. Featuring StimulusReflex and All Futures.
