Rails, Angular, Postgres, and Bootstrap: Powerful, Effective, Efficient, Full-Stack Web Development

Achieve awesome user experiences and performance with simple, maintainable code! Embrace the full stack of web development, from styling with Bootstrap, building an interactive user interface with Angular 4, to storing data quickly and reliably in PostgreSQL. With this fully revised new edition, take a holistic view of full-stack development to create usable, high-performing applications with Rails 5.1.

Rails is a great tool for building web applications, but it’s not the best at everything. Embrace the features built into your database. Learn how to use front-end frameworks. Seize the power of the application stack through Angular 4, Bootstrap, and PostgreSQL. When used together, these powerful and easy-to-use tools will open you to a new world of possibilities. This second edition is updated to cover Angular – a completely reworked front-end framework – and dives into new Postgres 9.6 features such as UPSERT. Also new is Webpack coverage, to develop the front-end code for your Rails application.

Create a usable and attractive login form using Bootstrap’s styles, while ensuring the database table backing it is secure using Postgres’ check constraints. See how creating an advanced Postgres index for a case-insensitive search speeds up your back end – enabling you to create a dynamic user experience using Angular 4. Create reusable components that bring Bootstrap and Angular together and effectively use materialized views for caching within Postgres. Get your front end working with Webpack, use Postgres’ features from migrations, and write unit tests for all of it. All of this within Rails 5.1.

You’ll gain the confidence to work at every level of the application stack, bringing the right solution to every problem.

What You Need:

This book covers Postgres 9.5, Rails 5, and Ruby 2.3. You should have some experience with basic Rails concepts and a cursory understanding of JavaScript, CSS, and SQL, but by no means need to be an expert. You’ll learn how to install Postgres on your computer or use a free version of it in the cloud.

Complete Solution without Guesswork If you learn by example, like I do, then this is the best book to learn a complete solution. I have been trying to figure out how to put all the parts together for quite some time, but every resource gives just enough to create frustration…but NOT this book. It’s very clear what files to create, what to name them, how to structure them, and what parts of the files need modification. Not only that, but he describes WHY!!! I’ve been trying to find a Vue 2 book that even comes close…

Not Tested on Windows at All

I was really interested in having a good tutorial on how to wire up Rails and Angular instead of using Asset Pipeline. The book actually seems to cover that very well and based on that alone I would give it a higher rating.However, nothing from the book was tested on Windows and there was no warning at all. For free/hobby work, I get it if people skimp on Windows testing or documentation. For a paid product, it should have done better testing with specific instructions or flat out…
