PROJECT: RUBY ON RAILS https://www.theodinproject.com/courses/web-development-101/lessons/ruby-on-rails#assignment
- Follow the instructions atop the Google Homepage project to set up a Github repository for this project (of course you’ll need to change the title).
- Do the Jumpstart Lab’s Blogger Tutorial sections I0 through I4. Pay attention to any error messages you get, both planned (because the tutorial walks you through a common error-guided workflow) and unplanned (likely for things like spelling errors). You’ll see all these messages again and again when you’re building Rails apps, so it’s helpful to start getting familiar with which portions of the message you should pay attention to (and maybe put into Google if you can’t figure out what caused it).
- After you finish going through the tutorial, you’ll notice that if you delete a tag, all related orphaned taggings will remain there. You can solve this by enforcing Referential Integrity by applying the dependent: :destroy option for the has_many method in the right model. You can learn about it in This Entry of the Rails Guides
- Here’s a helpful gist with common Blogger problems if you’re running into issues with routes, deleting, partials, and redirect_to.
- If you’re feeling ambitious, add in authentication in section I5.
- If you’re feeling very ambitious, try doing the final Extras section I6.
- Don’t forget to deploy your app to Heroku! Review Heroku deployment here.
