About this project

What We'll Do

Rails Composer is called, "A better way to build a Rails starter app."

Or, "The Rails generator on steroids."

Now you can help improve it for Rails 5.1.

The newest version of Rails has been in development for over a year. It brings significant new features, including better integration with popular JavaScript frameworks such as React, as well as a secure approach to handling application configuration variables.

I'd like to keep Rails Composer up to date and useful. The Rails developer community has supported previous Kickstarter campaigns to improve Rails Composer. With the new Rails 5.1 version, it's time to take Rails Composer to the next level.

Your pledge will lead to a new version of Rails Composer, plus in-depth example applications showing how to integrate Rails with JavaScript frameworks:

  • React
  • Angular
  • Vue.js

The hardest part of starting a new Rails project is staying up to date with the newest conventions and practices. Rails Composer and the example applications help developers get started quickly.

The Rewards

With your pledge, you will gain access to the top tutorials and screencasts for professional Rails developers:

Capstone Rails Tutorials

From Daniel Kehoe, the author of the Learn Ruby on Rails book series and the developer of the Rails Composer tool, you'll get the dozen Capstone Rails Tutorials, a collection of intermediate-level reference tutorials covering testing, authentication, authorization, Stripe and much more. This is a $95 value offered with a pledge of $49 or more.

Two months of GORAILS

The top screencast series for Rails developers is GORAILS from Chris Oliver. Developers look to this video series every week to level up their skills with an introduction to advanced topics. You'll get a two month subscription to GORAILS with a pledge of $95 or more, plus the dozen Capstone Rails Tutorials, and one month of Michael Hartl's LEARN ENOUGH SOCIETY.

One month of the LEARN ENOUGH SOCIETY

Michael Hartl's Rails Tutorial is a popular introduction to Rails and the LEARN ENOUGH SOCIETY adds videos and additional tutorials to build a complete reference series for professional Rails developers. You'll get a one month subscription to the LEARN ENOUGH SOCIETY with a pledge of $95 or more, plus the dozen Capstone Rails Tutorials, and a two month subscription to GORAILS.

This Kickstarter campaign will only last 45 days. So please act today if you wish to update Rails Composer and receive the valuable rewards.

Risks and challenges

The big challenge is meeting the fundraising goal of $4,000 USD. If we meet the goal, it's almost assured I'll deliver Rails Composer with the new improvements within a month of completing the Kickstarter campaign.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
