Is this is Love?

I have an SPA background (react/next). I fell in love with JS (long story), but JS fatigue soon overtook me.

I’m not sure how to put it, but I’ve just started RoR and I’m having a pleasant feeling, a sense of happiness. Now I understand why it’s referred to as “programmer happiness.”

I’m taking the RoR course from Pragmatic studio.

I want to delve deeply into RoR.

I understand that courses cannot turn you into an expert, but they can point you in the right direction. This is important.

Are there some courses that speak from their experiences, enlighten the viewer, and sprinkle wisdom here and there?

What courses should I take after this one to supplement it?

Waiting for your reply.

Quick question to better tailor any further questions. Do you intend to build RoR apps while still using your React/Next SPA as the client? Are you planning to learn the more Rails-centric method of client management with server-side rendered markup, Hotwire, Turbo, Stimulus, and all that jazz? Both?

When I hear JS frontend frameworks, I get nauseated. Taking the brakes off of them. I’m curious to see how far I can get with vanilla RoR.

The issue with SPA is that you end up with two apps; bundling and tooling are also issues.

Guys I’m wondering if there something like https://redwoodjs.com/ and https://hilla.dev/ in the ruby community. That bundles a modern SPA framework with a mature backend and those bit convention over configuration style something other than the hotwire framework.
