Hotwire Example Template
A collection of branches that transmit HTML over the wire.
How to read this repository
Through the power of incremental Git diffs, each of this repository's branches provides a step-by-step demonstration of how to implement a feature or behavior.
This repository's main branch serves as the root all of the other branches, and consists of a handful of commits generated by the Rails command line interface.
Some branches are works-in-progress. Others are more refined. Some noteworthy branches include:
A branch's README.md includes a prose explanation of the patterns
at-play. When reading a branch's source code, read the changes commit-by-commit
either on the branch comparison page (for example,
main...hotwire-example-live-preview), the branch's commits page (for
example, hotwire-example-live-preview), or the branch's
(for example, hotwire-example-live-preview).
To experiment with a branch on your own, clone the repository, check out the branch, execute its set up script, start the local server, then visit http://localhost:3000:
bin/setup bin/rails server open http://localhost:3000
How to fork this repository
Each branch builds its narrative through incremental changesets that are visualized as Git diffs. It's not uncommon for code revisions to be made after a branch is published. Changes are retroactively incorporated into the most appropriate commit available. In fact, histories are rebased and rewritten on a regular basis. In practice, these deviations from conventional Git workflows make this repository a bad candidate for forking.
With that being said, if you're comfortable with interactive rebasing, the CONTRIBUTING.md guide outlines some of the commands and procedures used to create this repository's content.
