I turned What's Going On (Whagon) into a Rails app!

A few days ago, I presented a very simple React app that shows what's going on in any GitHub repository. You can read about it here:

After thinking a bit more about it, I decided to go ahead and turn the app into a Rails app with a React frontend powered by the react-rails gem, you can check it out here!

I decided to go the Rails way for a few reasons:

  1. A backend was needed to be able to implement a GitHub login (already done! 😎), which will allow for many other features to come, stay tunned for them!
  2. I wanted to build something with Rails again for too long 😜
  3. Do you really need more? 😁

I'll keep you posted on the progress, thanks for reading!
