First, I’d like to thank Chris Oliver for his wonderful Railsconf 2020.2 talk, Advanced ActionText: Attaching any model in rich text. I’d highly recommend you watching that first for context, as I’m going to implement this ActionText table based on his Youtube preview. Towards the end of the video, Chris mentions you could use the Continue reading “Adding Tables to ActionText With Stimulus.js”
Radio buttons, modeled after physical buttons on old radios, allow for only one element in a list to be selected. The browser automatically unselects the other options. This simple behavior often fits your needs, but I recently found myself wanting to be alerted on an unselect action so that I could change what was displayed Continue reading “Radio Selection Unselect with Stimulus.js”

Clicked links respond in milliseconds, and there is never a need to wait… Waiting for a remote record to delete, and then the whole page refresh afterwards Continue reading “Stimulus.js Tutorial: Interactive Deletes with Rails UJS”
One of the features of a Progressive Web App is the lack of browser chrome on a mobile device. iOS and Android hide little things like the address bar and the browser history buttons. It’s up to the PWA itself to provide the navigation to previous pages. Breadcrumbs are one technique of displaying previously visited Continue reading “Leaving Breadcrumbs in your Progressive Web App with Stimulus.js”
Just because Stimulus.js is designed to work with HTML over the wire doesn’t mean it can’t use JSON APIs when the need arises. In fact, it can perform just like Vue.js in pulling JSON from an API and placing the results on your page. Here is a tutorial that loads commit messages from Github, and renders them Continue reading “Loading and Templating JSON Responses in Stimulus.js”
Use Stimulus.js to manage ActionCable connections in your interactive web app.
