The Ruby on Rails Tutorial has been updated for Rails 6!
This is the 6th edition of the tutorial that Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales once called his “favorite book”.
Since its release in 2010, the Ruby on Rails Tutorial has been one of the leading introductions to web development, helping thousands of people start new careers, become freelance web developers, and found companies of their own.
I’m grateful for all the support!
Fully updated for Rails 6
This new edition of the Ruby on Rails Tutorial has been fully updated to be compatible with the recently released Rails 6. As with previous editions, the focus is on providing a thorough introduction to web development rather than on covering the latest features of Rails.
Indeed, because the core functionality of Rails has been so stable since Rails 4, most of the written text and screencasts haven’t changed much in several years. This is great news, since it means the skills you learn won’t soon go out of date.
That said, there have been updates throughout the tutorial, including:
- Integrating Rails with Yarn and Webpack
- Use of the newer form_with method to unify form_for and form_tag
- A completely rewritten section on image upload using Active Storage, ImageMagick, and Amazon S3
