HTML over Websockets is all the rage

Jason and Chris are here today, and they start off with talking about a busy Black Friday weekend. In the Ruby on Rails world, Rails 6.1 RC2 is out, and there’s been some buzz on Twitter with DHH about some new magic happening with it. Chris tells us about the new updates with Stimulus 2.0 and how job queues play into WebSockets. Chris has been working on a custom process support for Hatchbox and he built his own version of CableReady to use, and Jason tells us why CableReady just keeps getting better. Also, Chris tells us all about the Ruby Advent Calendar that you should check out.

[00:02:51] Jason tells us what’s new in the Ruby on Rails world and mentions RC2, and Chris tested Jumpstart Pro against RC1. Jason talks about something is wrong with his RC and it may be something with the version of Ruby he’s using. He also tells us about a Full Stack Radio episode with Adam Wathan talking about Screencasting and he found it super helpful.
[00:07:22] Chris opens Twitter and Nate Hopkins Tweeted about whatever the new magic DHH has been calling it and DHH responded.   Does this mean the new stuff is coming out because Stimulus 2.0 got released today? Find out what else DHH said.
