Subscribe to the Hotwire dev newsletter.
Welcome back to the ⚡️ Hotwire dev newsletter! This edition has a lot of great tutorials along with a full-featured book on Rails development. I’m extra excited about the first two links: building a Twitter clone and HEY-inspired pop-ups.
You’ll also notice a new section, Jobs. This includes both employers looking to hire Rails devs and individuals who are looking for Rails work. If you’re on either end of the market, send me an email to get added to the next edition.
Replicate Hey and Basecamp’s pop-up menus with a Turbo Frame and a tiny Stimulus controller. This approach works great for menus because the content is only loaded when toggled and will remain cached.
Not just remotely rendered modals, but forms inside of said modals. Extends the modal controller from TailwindCSS Stimulus Components to hook into success and failure callbacks to clear errors.
