Rails 7 javascript and asset pipeline documentation not really complete and fully comprehensible

Like so many others here I also just registered for the forums just to add another comment to this thread. Long time Rails developer, but have done very little front-end Rails work for a few years focusing on API work. Started adding some front-end to a Rails 7 app and what a minefield with the javascript builders, and bundlers and what not. Need this library, that doesn’t work with importmaps, so you need to use esbuild, which break these other things. I understand it’s necessary for front-end work, just wish it was a little less messy and there was just one way. Love Rails, and I know this is mostly because I have very little understanding of the different packagers, and bundlers, but do miss when you could get an app going and be productive right away.
