  • importmap-rails

    Use ESM with importmap to manage modern JavaScript in Rails without transpiling or bundling.

    Now, the default for new apps created with rails new is to use import maps through the importmaps-rails gem. Instead of writing a package.json and installing dependencies with npm or yarn, you use ./bin/importmap CLI to pin (or unpin or update) dependencies.

  • hotwire-rails

    Use Hotwire in your Ruby on Rails app

    Applications generated with Rails 7 will get Turbo and Stimulus (from Hotwire) by default, instead of Turbolinks and UJS. Hotwire is a new approach that delivers fast updates to the DOM by sending HTML over the wire.

  • Mergify

    Automate your Pull Request with Mergify. Mergify is the most powerful merge queue tool that offers speculative checks, batch merges, and multiple queueing options. Coordinated with any CI and fully integrated to GitHub. Get started or request a demo!
