re: Re-posting the same project from last week, since it sparked some interest among folks: Sail. It is a Rails engine to bring in settings to control...

Thanks a lot. We're definitely some of the folks interested.

And we'd probably get involved with Sail ourselves plus the community if it were live in dev.to.

In fact, I just made an issue requesting this, if you'd like to give it a shot Vinicius, we'd definitely love to have the gem's author active in our project.

Replace Flipflop with Sail #686

It may be silly to replace a tried-and-tested gem with a newer one, but conceptually I think this approach will work. Read on. Please mention if this would be a terrible idea.

Feature Request or Task

Sail is a new gem from a dev.to community member github.com/vinistock/sail

It adds app-wide settings/config in a way I like more than Flipflop. I feel like feature flags should live alongside other settings we might want to use. A unified site-wide admin config. This could also be a destination for a lot of features folks could use for self-hosted instances of the app.

User Story / Description

As an admin, I'd like to adjust a site-wide configuration.

Definition of Done

All current flipflop features are replaced by Sail, then we can add more as we go


This is awesome! I'm very flattered that you took such an interest in the gem.

I won't be able to get to the issue until the 25th (I will be out on vacation with little access to my computer), but I will gladly put together a pull request to add it to dev.to.

Then people can checkout to the branch and test it out, see if it suits your needs. Another idea would be to have the styling look like the overall dev.to design. That'd be pretty cool, I love the visuals on this site.

Anyway, I' m excited with the collaboration!

Awesome. Us or someone else may get to it sooner (or decide it isn't actually a good idea), but very happy with this approach and definitely excited to collaborate. Your involvement in both projects would be a real boon to everything!

Enjoy the vacation!!!
