A TodoMVC built with Rails, Turbolinks and boosted with Stimulus
This is a modest attempt to create a TodoMVC with Rails, Turbolinks and boost it a bit with Stimulus. This project was inspired by this project : a TodoMVC built with Rails and Turbolinks 3
The concept behind
The goal of this project was primarily to get more familiar and practice with the new Stimulus framework.
The approach taken in this project is to make most of the actions on the todolist client side with Stimulus controller to get this crisp and fast feeling of client side rendering.
This Todolist preserves the data in a database within the backend. Each action is therefore linked to a call to the backend to update the content in the database. Those calls are ajax calls using Rails UJS
A live demo is available at: https://todomvc-rails-on-stimulus.herokuapp.com/
As a comparison you can also test the Turbolink 3 only: https://todomvc-turbolinks.herokuapp.com/
- Fix Turbolinks blinks and path change
- We are talking about speed here, score a 100 at Google page speed
- Add tests
- Add a new todo client side
- Split the Todo controller in smaller controllers that communicate between each others (wait for 1.1)
This is not intended to be a perfect example of how to use Stimulus, Rails and Turbolinks in a production environment. This is solely an exercise to practice this new Framework and to confirm how well it pairs with Rails and Turbolinks.
Lots of inspiration from this great project that got me started A Turbolinks 3 TodoMVC
Many thanks for all Q&A in the Stimulus issues
