So I wrote a book about it. My awesome dojo4 teammates helped review it for technical soundness and I think it's at a great point to release to the world. Hopefully it helps other front-end developers who jump into a rails project and realize they're lost. Let this book be your compass!
Check out the book:
Ruby on Rails is an extremely powerful full-stack web application framework, but with its power comes complexity. For front-end developers who simply need to edit HTML, CSS, and JS within a Ruby on Rails application, it can be a daunting task. This book explains what front-end developers needs to know about Ruby on Rails in order to work their mastery within a rails app. By the end of the book, you'll be able to: * know where to put your html, css, & js within the structure of a ruby on rails app * how rails routes requests to controllers * using views, layouts, and partials in controllers * what the asset pipeline is and how to use it * how controllers and views in rails work together to render a response in the browser * how data is added to views and how to link to the data in your html
You'll love it:
