ViewComponent, Alpine.js, and embedding videos in ActionText

With parks and beaches being closed during this time, the guys are trying to figure out creative things to do to get out of the house. Chris is excited to use his smoker to cook outdoors and Andrew really wants to surf, but the beaches are closed! In this episode, the guys cover Scopes, View Component changes, Storybook, Bootstrap, Tailwind UI extensions, Action Text, and other things. Also, how is Ruby Meetup going with Andrew? Listen here and you’ll find out all sorts of good things to keep your mind going!

[00:04:43] Jason talks about “filtering” and how it relates to model scopes. 

[00:08:30] Speaking of fun side projects, Andrew asks the guys if they heard that Twilio and DEV are doing a Hackathon? There are lots of prizes and they are pretty good, but you need to do something to participate so find out here ☺ 

[00:12:46] Andrew brings up how View Component from GitHub went through changing their Gem name and doing upgrades and how they have collection support now. Also, Andrew got Storybook running with the latest changes. Jason is curious how Andrew got Storybook wired up with it.
