#Rails

February 2017

Yesterday, I’ve upgraded my Pomodoro app to the latest 4.2 #rails. It took some time to make tests run first, being a new dev box (and needed to created databases too). Well, it took maybe 2 hours overall.

Today I wanted to check how many alive users I’ve got, and it seems I’m the only one. I’m still happy with my app, because I use it heavily myself. Well, in order to check who uses my app, I had to enable pry in production first, wait for CI to finish, and then upload with Capistrano.

Also, I’ve setup Time Machine backup to my #linux server. I had to increase Time Machine disk size by 200Gb, and was lucky to have free space in its volume group (I use LVM).

Today I continued to research AuthLogic and how it applies to the #rails app. Every day I feel that this time I’ve got it, and can finally write the necessary tests, but everyday it turns out, I’ve got more to learn. Well, today I also feel I’ve got it, and tomorrow I’m going to finish it.

No time to work on business today.

Working steadily with #typescript now, jasmine/karma testing is a blast and actually starting to see dev team I work with write almost similar code. On the #rails front trying to find a decent content editor that works well with angular, sticking with mercury editor for now.

Managed to get a CRM with dashboards to staging inside a week, running on 0 sleep and 4-5 coffees. Certainly much faster with #rails and #angular than I was last year, but also thank god for Postgres JSON support.

Yesterday:

  • Developed the rails app further to add create an activity feed (like littlelogs) https://github.com/stockandawe/resolutions
  • Looked at a couple of #angularjs on #rails" tutorials to figure out how to get the frontend onto angular in the rails app. Honeybadger.io blogs have a few good tutorials

Today:

  • Worked with a developer friend who has a lot of experience with Angular and with Rails to help navigate how to get started doing the frontend with angular. Some frustrations, but good progress. Managed to get up to par in functionality that was handled with RJS in rails.

Took a couple of days off this weekend. Only worthwhile work I did was to start getting familiar with using #angular as the frontend for a #rails app. I created a simple rails app that I have been meaning to build as a side project and am navigating my way through doing all the #frontend interactions in angular.

I don't like giving up but nothing I try works out and it's very frustrating. All of those partial views made sense months ago but now it feels like a jigsaw puzzle

This weekend I plan to resume another project I started ages ago. As I suspected I've forgotten most of how #rails works so I decided to start with the easy stuff - fonts, colours, layout. I don't have a clear idea for the look of the site yet, so these "easy" things are actually quite difficult.

To pluralise or not to pluralise. That is the question. Haven't worked out an easy way to remember yet. Messed this up in a migration last night then had to rollback and start over #RoR

This weekend didn't go to plan, really disappointed. In the short amount of time I had to practice #rails I ran into problems constantly. Solved one, two to go

Took the day off work and spent it on #rails. Slowly getting the hang of it. Completed my first set of associations, validations and tests
