Product Description

The “Bible” for Rails Development: Fully Updated for Rails 5

“When I read The Rails Way for the first time, I felt like I truly understood Rails for the first time.”

―Steve Klabnik, Rails contributor and mentor

The Rails™ 5 Way is the comprehensive, authoritative reference guide for professionals delivering production-quality code using modern Ruby on Rails. Obie Fernandez illuminates the entire Rails 5 API, its most powerful idioms, design approaches, and libraries. He presents new and updated content on Action Cable, RSpec 3.4, Turbolinks 5.0, the Attributes API, and many other enhancements, both major and subtle.

 

Through detailed code examples, you’ll dive deep into Ruby on Rails, discover why it’s designed as it is, and learn to make it do exactly what you want. Proven in thousands of production systems, the knowledge in this book will maximize your productivity and help you build more successful solutions.

  • Build powerful, scalable, REST-compliant back-end services
  • Program complex program flows using Action Controller
  • Represent models, relationships, and operations in Active Record, and apply advanced Active Record techniques
  • Smoothly evolve database schema via Migrations
  • Craft front-ends with ActionView and the Asset Pipeline
  • Optimize performance and scalability with caching and Turbolinks 5.0
  • Improve your productivity using Haml HTML templating
  • Secure your systems against attacks like SQL Injection, XSS, and XSRF
  • Integrate email using Action Mailer
  • Enable real-time, websockets-based browser behavior with Action Cable
  • Improve responsiveness with background processing
  • Build “API-only” back-end projects that speak JSON
  • Leverage enhancements to Active Job, serialization, and Ajax support


Review

Praise for The Rails Way

 

"For intermediates and above, I strongly recommend adding this title to your technical bookshelf. There is simply no other Rails title on the market at this time that offers the technical depth of the framework than The Rails™ 3 Way."

―Mike Riley, Dr. Dobb’s Journal

 

"I highly suggest you get this book. Software moves fast, especially the Rails API, but I feel this book has many core API and development concepts that will be useful for a while to come."

―Matt Polito, software engineer and member of Chicago Ruby User Group

 

"This book should live on your desktop if you’re a Rails developer. It’s nearly perfect in my opinion."

―Luca Pette, developer

 

"The Rails™ 3 Way is likely to take you from being a haphazard poke-a-stick-at-it programmer to a deliberate, skillful, productive, and confident RoR developer."

―Katrina Owen, JavaRanch

 

"I can positively say that it’s the single best Rails book ever published to date. By a long shot."

―Antonio Cangiano, software engineer and technical evangelist at IBM

 

"This book is a great crash course in Ruby on Rails! It doesn’t just document the features of Rails, it filters everything through the lens of an experienced Rails developer―so you come out a pro on the other side."

―Dirk Elmendorf, cofounder of Rackspace Inc. and Rails developer

 

"The key to The Rails Way is in the title. It literally covers the ''way'' to do almost everything with Rails. Writing a truly exhaustive reference to the most popular web application framework used by thousands of developers is no mean feat. A thankful community of developers that has struggled to rely on scant documentation will embrace The Rails Way with open arms. A tour de force!"

―Peter Cooper, editor, Ruby Inside: The Ruby Blog

 

"In the past year, dozens of Rails books have been rushed to publication. A handful are good. Most regurgitate rudimentary information easily found on the Web. Only this book provides both the broad and deep technicalities of Rails. Nascent and expert developers, I recommend you follow The Rails Way."

―Martin Streicher, chief technology officer, McClatchy Interactive, former editor in chief of Linux Magazine

 

"Hal Fulton’s The Ruby Way has always been by my side as a reference while programming Ruby. Many times I had wished there was a book that had the same depth and attention to detail, only focused on the Rails framework. That book is now here and hasn’t left my desk for the past month."

―Nate Klaiber, Ruby programmer

 

"I knew soon after becoming involved with Rails that I had found something great. Now, with Obie’s book, I have been able to step into Ruby on Rails development coming from .NET and be productive right away. The applications I have created I believe to be a much better quality due to the techniques I learned using Obie’s knowledge."

I wasn''t terribly disappointed by this book. It probably merits a four-star review, but I wanted to call out that it''s not adding a lot of value over and above what you''d get by just reading the Rails documentation and the READMEs for various plugins. This book and its predecessors get a ton of five-star reviews. After reading them, it''s not clear why. The premise of the book is very promising—a tour of Rails for intermediate to advanced users of the platform. I''m not sure that it lives up to this promise. Many of the chapters seem 100% introductory. Some of the chapters (e.g. Turbolinks) almost seem to mimic the content of the corresponding plugin''s README text.

There are a handful of insights and techniques in here, but those are in the margins. This is largely an introductory work. I was surprisingly disappointed. My hope was to see more content about maintaining Rails applications, architecture and design patterns. I would have expected more case studies and fewer introductions to syntax.

It’s a really good book for deep dives in various parts of the framework. My only gripe is they went with haml and I feel like if you are writing a rails way book, you shouldn’t inject your opinion but just give the info on what the framework provides. Not sure why they did that and it’s a big enough issue to me that I would leave this at 3.5 stars if I could, but the rest was good enough to round up.

Great Insights into the Inner Workings of Rails.
Reviewed in the United States on September 14, 2019
Great book for those with a general understanding of Rails. It gave me a much deeper and thorough understanding of Rails 5. The author demonstrates an in-depth knowledge of how Rails works and sprinkles in viewpoints from others that add really useful perspective.
