Vite Ruby

Build Status Maintainability Test Coverage License

Vite is to frontend tooling as Ruby to programming, pure joy! 😍

This repo contains libraries that will allow you to easily integrate Vite in your favourite Ruby framework, such as Rails or Hanami.

Why Vite? 🤔

Vite does not bundle your code during development, which means the dev server is extremely fast to start, and your changes will be updated instantly.

In production, Vite bundles your code with tree-shaking, lazy-loading, and common chunk splitting out of the box, to achieve optimal loading performance.

It also provides great defaults, and is easier to configure than similar tools like webpack.

Features ⚡️

  • 💡 Instant server start
  • ⚡️ Blazing fast hot reload
  • 🚀 Zero-config deployments
  • 🤝 Integrated with assets:precompile
  • And more!

Documentation 📖

Visit the documentation website to check out the guides and searchable configuration reference.

Installation 💿

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'vite_rails' # vite_hanami for Hanami apps, vite_ruby for Rack apps

Then, run:

bundle install
bundle exec vite install

This will generate configuration files and a sample setup.

Additional installation instructions are available in the documentation website.
