We recently started to port all of our apps to @rails 7
Most notable change: Hotwire is enabled by default.
This is what we refactored. See widget to record videos and store them in active storage
Recording is a polymorphic model. Want to save it, but not use a nested form
How this looks with Hotwire:
The user clicks a button, and it opens a modal (no need to be a modal, but it’s nicer to see your self bigger)
Then you record yourself. This is some simple logic inside a @stimulusjs controller.
After recording, the file field is populated with the video.
This is where Hotwire comes into play.
The controller yields a turbo-frame response, which replaces the HTML of the widget.
Now we can add this recording widget to any other form
- without erasing the form data for the user
- without using ugly nested forms
it’s faster and has better usability.
