[01:46:58] blackcross: when using RoR as a backend API only, what is the most popular front-end framework to couple with in your opinions or statistically? I see a lot of React, but I've also looked at Marko (ebay front-end) and AppRun
[17:29:42] bothari: I'm trying to get started with devise and rails 5, but I'm getting bogged down in gem version incompatibilities. Where can I find good instructions for doing devise with rails 5?
[18:07:32] bothari: Yes. It lists example applications at https://github.com/plataformatec/devise/wiki/Example-Applications
[18:08:09] bothari: I got the first one and downloaded it a few minutes ago, but I have 2.5.1 and it require 2.3.1
[18:08:34] bothari: I changed the ruby version, and it failed with a complaint about the secrect key being 32 bytes.
[18:09:24] bothari: I switched back and tried to install 2.3.1, but now Linux Mint is complaining that there's no secure way to talk to canonicals apt site.
[19:20:03] bothari: Ok. After 2 hours of updating my linux min vm, it still won't compile ruby 2.3.1.
[23:16:37] elcontrastador: Greetings, What's the most recommended solution/approach to file uploads lately? Carrierwave or other?
[23:26:51] Radar: elcontrastador: It's the easiest to understand one and least magical, at least in my experience. I've tried Paperclip, Dragonfly, Carrierwave and now Shrine and I'm going to continue to use Shrine.
[23:29:48] elcontrastador: i looked they dry-validations you mentioned last week. I'm sticking with custom validations classes for now...It's just straight ruby and seemed to just feel more comfortable to me than another dsl to dink with. I will revisit that later when the pressure is off
[23:30:25] Radar: elcontrastador: great to hear you've at least looked at it. The DSL can be a bit confusing to start off with, you're right. I hope you come back around to it :)
[23:31:20] elcontrastador: I def will. It looks really clean and well designed. I appreciate your opinions/suggestions
