  • Using webpacker to compile bundles
  • Creating simple actions to be handled with stimulus
  • Testing your javascript

If you've worked with Samvera you've noticed that it's largely based on jQuery. This was a great technology in its heyday, but the Javascript has changed considerably since then. Many developers have moved onto complicated frameworks like React, Vue or Angular, but often times we need to do something very simple, something that jQuery was great at. Is there a middle ground? Yes! Stimulus, a small library from Basecamp, hits that sweet spot of being simple, while having the benefits of its more substantial cousins. This workshop will introduce these technologies in the context of a Samvera application. No prior knowledge of Webpack or Stimulus is required.

Requirements:  A laptop with Rails installed.
