Welcome back to the ⚡️ Hotwire dev newsletter! Rails 7 was officially released yesterday and oh boy am I excited. The biggest change is “all new answers on the front-end” which means you can kiss Webpacker goodbye. We also have a brand new podcast from Jared White, why DHH thinks “the time is right for Hotwire”, and an in-depth article on building a real-time chat app.
