How To Dockerize an Existing Ruby on Rails Application

Run rails applications with less effort

Ruby on Rails is an open-source web application development framework based on Ruby. Many big companies use Rails to build their products, such as GitHub, Shopify, Airbnb, and Twitch.

From this post, you’ll learn how to dockerize an existing Ruby on Rails application to make development faster and easier.

Setup

First, we need need to install Docker and download a git repository from GitHub. For this setup, I’m using macOS.

Now, we will create a Docker image that contains Ruby on Rails. Let’s break down the individual ingredients of the Dockerfile file.

Re-Seed Your Heroku Database Everyday With One-Off Dynos

In my last blog , I went into how you can seed your database from an external API. This is great for grabbing information from a source other than your own backend and is a pretty essential tool for building a lot of projects. However, what happens once you’ve pushed your new project onto Heroku? What if the information you seeded is constantly updating (stocks, weekly sales, etc)? Do you plan on resetting your database every single day so your site information stays current? I mean, sure you could, but in the grand scheme of things this is going to spell out trouble for you and your project. Enter Heroku dynos and one-off dynos.

_ “Dynos are isolated, virtualized Linux containers that are designed to execute code based on a user-specified command.” -_Heroku

As the above quote mentions, dynos are containers filled with code that execute on a user-specified command. Meaning that for code bases of any size, you can store code that will simplify workflow and enhance productivity.

one-off dyno is executable code that we can use to manage all of our administrative and maintenance tasks. Seeding our database falls into this category, but what else does? According to the Heroku website, one-off dynos can be used in the following ways:

  • Initializing databases or running database migrations. (e.g. rake db:migrate or node migrate.js migrate)
  • Running a console or a REPL shell to run arbitrary code or inspect the app’s models against the live database. (e.g. rails consoleirb, or node)
  • One-time scripts committed into the app’s repo (e.g. ruby scripts/fix_bad_records.rb or node tally_results.js).

For this guide, we’re going to be re-seeding our database, which falls under the first category. Also, like the previous guide, I’ll be using Ruby on Rails. Before we jump in, first make sure you’ve done the following.

  • Attached your backend to a Heroku site.
  • Installed the gem ‘database-cleaner
  • Install the Heroku Scheduler on your app (Very easy to do! Just follow the docs linked here. Once you have it set up, don’t worry about adding anything yet, we’ll get to it.)

Now that we have all of our pieces together, it’s time to build a one-off dyno! All we need to do to get started is to build a rake task. To do this, create a file called scheduler.rakein /app/db/lib/tasks. Once there, you can take a look at the following code.

#database #ruby-on-rails #heroku-scheduler #heroku #ruby #re-seed your heroku database everyday with one-off dynos

Awesome Ruby Frameworks For Web Development

Ruby is a programming language that has been accepted with open arms since 1995, and thanks to its open-source nature, it is still growing every day. Ruby is fast, object-oriented, and secure, which brings a dynamic nature into the project with an MVC support structure that makes development more comfortable than ever. With start-ups openly accepting Ruby, the language has shown remarkable progress in almost every field, especially web development. Ruby’s popularity motivated people to take the development to the next level and bring out some best ruby frameworks for the developers.

Some frameworks are built to ease out middleware and request/response of the application. Some are made for REST APIs and others for web applications. Collecting the best ruby frameworks from across the globe, in this post, we’ll talk about these frameworks and how each framework lets the developer take advantage of Ruby.

Without further ado, let’s delve into details of the best ruby frameworks for web development that will surely benefit your business.

Ruby on Rails is regarded as one of the best ruby frameworks. It was the primary language in developing big projects such as Twitter and helped the language boost the community. Often referred to as “Rails,” Ruby on Rails is a web development framework with an MVC control structure and currently running its 6.1 version. The 16-year-old language has dramatically influenced the web development structures and managing databases, web pages, and other components on a web application. Ruby on Rails has an extensive plugin library called “gems” and can be distributed and installed through the popular Ruby package manager called RubyGems. The most notable Ruby on Rails projects include Twitter, Airbnb, and Bloomberg.

Camping is another best ruby web framework. The source code of the camping framework is just 4KB in size, making it the most lightweight Ruby framework on the internet (with equal capabilities). Apart from its size, camping has also been popular since it was written by an unidentified programmer who disappeared in August 2009. Identified by the pseudo-name “Why the lucky stiff,” the programmer has left the project, and since then, camping has been an open-source framework with a huge community. Camping requires Rack to work on the projects and is available as a RubyGem on GitHub. An excellent powerful feature of camping is converting the complete web application into a single file organizing it as an MVC structure. You can visit the official GitHub page to learn more about Camping.

Sinatrais the best ruby framework available in the market for web development. Sinatra is a simple and easy-to-use DSL written in Ruby and often used popularly in place of Ruby on Rails as a web development framework. Sinatra is named after the legendary musician Frank Sinatra and is powerful enough to set up a fully functional web application with just a single file. Sinatra was launched in 2007, is open-source, and hence free to use for the Ruby enthusiasts. Built on Rack, Sinatra can develop micro web applications to full-scale heavy web applications with fewer resources than rails. You would sometimes hear that Sinatra is a microframework, but that is just because of its lightweight and smaller size. In the arena, Sinatra is powerful, capable, and supports RubyGems to accomplish specific tasks with minimum effort. Some notable projects using Sinatra are LinkedIn, Heroku, Apple, and BBC.

Ramaze is another best ruby web framework in competition to help create outstanding web development projects. Being light-weight, Ramaze is faster and offers a flat learning curve. For ruby projects involving JQuery, AJAX, ORM, Javascript, or some templating engine, Ramaze stands as an excellent choice to be seen in the consideration. Ramaze is robust and popular as a “bug-free” framework. Ramaze provides clean and light solutions as compared to Rails. The GitHub page for Ramaze can be accessed through the Ramaze Github link.

Scorched is another one of the best ruby web frameworks that requires Ruby 2.0 and above to work. Scorched is light-weight, and the official website states Scorched as “true evolutionary enhancement of Sinatra, with more power, focus, and less clutter.” Scorched developers have assumed that since Scorched is on top of Rack, the fellow developers are already familiar with it. With that effect, they have removed any “overlapping” functionality and kept Scorched simplified and concrete in its working. Scorched is not recommended to new Ruby developers or inexperienced programmers. Scorched lets you experiment, implement new tools and play around with this open-ended framework. It provides a definite and robust structure for working with HTTP requests and can also be used for scalable ruby-based applications.

If you have experience in some other best ruby frameworks and are excited to have it in this list, mention your framework with its capabilities in the comment section below. I hope this list justified the ruby programmers and the people ready to dive into the Ruby pool. Thanks for reading!

Ruby on Rails vs Node.js: Which Should You Use for Your Project?

Ruby On Rails has existed for more than a decade now. It is a framework of choice of Twitter, Airbnb, etc. And now many developers boldly claim that Ruby is dead and that everyone should stick to  Node.js. That is, quite frankly, not much younger than RoR.

Also, it is not a framework. It is a web-server technology that is used with JavaScript frameworks, like  Express,  Meteor, Sails, and databases like  MongoDB. However, such giants as LinkedIn, Hapi, and PayPal gradually decided to migrate from RoR to Node.js. If you’re interested in learning more about top Node.js frameworks, please check the  best Node.js frameworks.

So why the Ruby on Rails vs. Node.js confrontation is one of the most popular topics in web development? Why, if at first sight, these technologies are so different? Why are they even compared? And which one is the best? Let’s try to figure this out.

Which one is the right solution: Ruby on Rails or Node.js?

First of all, let’s clarify that it’s not about which tool is better, and which one is worse. Both Ruby on Rails and Node.js are  the most popular server-side technologies. And both of them have their pros and cons.

The thing is that each technology is better for specific purposes. And that’s precisely the goal we’re pursuing — to compare Node.js vs. RoR and understand when to choose which tool.

So, to figure out all the benefits and downsides, we’ve analyzed:

  • the popularity of the technology over the past few years;
  • scalability;
  • what brands use the technology;
  • how easy it is to adopt it;
  • performance;

Having these criteria in mind, let’s begin our Ruby on Rails vs. Node.js 2020 comparison.

Ruby on Rails Routing - Part 1

Ruby on Rails and its routing capabilities make creating new resources and URL structures a breeze. This guide is a walk-through of some use cases for routing with the framework.

Why routing?

A strength of any web application framework is to lift a lot of the load for you. Assuming there are conventions to uphold can save teams loads of time when adding and shipping new features.

Rather than craft URL schemes and invoke ways to pass in property ids you can leverage the internals of the framework to get the job done in a few lines of code or less.

100+ Ways to Solve a Specific Programming Problem in 50+ Languages

José Valim and I asked developers how they would solve a specific problem in their language of choice. How would you do it?

**Quick Jump: **The Problem Came from a Feature I Was Building | Preparing to Ask for Help | Asking for Help | Asking the Community How They Would Solve It

If you prefer watching video, I recorded a video version of this blog post.

While developing an Elixir application I ran into a slight road block on how to solve a specific problem. It involved a nested loop, updating 2 counters and also updating a Map (a dictionary-like data structure).

This post outlines the specific problem, how I solved it in Python, why I struggled solving it in Elixir (spoiler alert: it has nothing to do with Elixir) and how all of this turned into a project where dozens of folks contributed solutions in dozens of languages.

If you don’t care about the details, here’s the repo with all of the solutions.
