Rails, Angular, Postgres and Bootstrap 2nd Ed (Pragmatic Bookshelf)
Rails, Angular, Postgres and Bootstrap 2nd Ed (Pragmatic Bookshelf)
Thursday, 03 August 2017

The thinking behind this book is that Rails is a great tool for building web applications, but it's not the best at everything. Author David Bryant Copeland shows how to use the full stack of web development alongside Rails, from styling with Bootstrap, building an interactive user interface with Angular 4, to storing data quickly and reliably in PostgreSQL.


This fully revised new edition takes a holistic view of full-stack development to create usable, high-performing applications with Rails 5.1. This edition has been updated to cover Angular 4 - a completely reworked front-end framework - as well as new Postgres 9.6 features such as UPSERT. Also new is Webpack coverage, to develop the front-end code for your Rails application.
