      Hey Jacob,

      Client side (direct upload is what people call this) is better because it uploads the file directly to S3. Server-side will upload the file to your Rails app, and then your Rails app uploads it to S3 meaning you duplicate the file upload and do it twice effectively.

      Direct upload will be significantly faster.

        That's a great idea. I'm not quite sure if I'll get around to this soon, but you can absolutely use the Custom VPS functionality to do this if you manually setup a server on Digital Ocean for the time being.

          For votes, you could think of them similar to Likes except that you'd also want to record the value of the vote (up or down) or for stars you'd record the number of stars. There are some gems you can look at for this as well: https://github.com/ryanto/acts_as_votable

          I need to make a video on this soon!

            I'd recommend using either Ransack or Searchkick for this:

            https://gorails.com/episodes/forum-search-with-ransack?autoplay=1
            https://gorails.com/episodes/elasticsearch-with-searckick?autoplay=1

            These forms are generally powered by a search similar to these. Searchkick is a great solution for this and can do a LOT of awesome things.

              Have you seen this series? It's pretty similar but building a clone of Google Sheets instead of Google Docs. https://gorails.com/series/realtime-multi-user-spreadsheets

                We've got a 6 part series coming in on Ember shortly that's guest hosted by a friend of mine. :)

                  This is a great idea! We'll probably want to cover this gem: https://github.com/rmosolgo/graphql-ruby

                    One of the great things about Javascript ES6 is that it's pretty much taking up all the features that made CoffeeScript useful. I'll be covering a series on ES6 sometime soon where we'll go in depth on that as CoffeeScript is probably going to get phased out pretty much everywhere.

                      That's a really great suggestion. I think that's a common thing people have trouble with and it can be hard to do examples of complex things without making a 4 hour screencast. ;)

                      I'll make a screencast on this for you!

                          Not complete by any means, but I did do an episode on exploring the iOS adapter and the changes you need to make to forms to make them compatible.

                            I like this idea a lot. One of the first Rails apps I worked on was like this with five or six apps that connected to a central "repository" app that contained the CMS posts. Would love to do an episode on this soon.

                              This episode should actually be coming out in the next couple of weeks!

                                This isn't necessarily just about Websockets and how they work which I think is what you're asking for, but if you haven't seen this episode, I covered Websockets using ActionCable from Rails 5 in this episode. https://gorails.com/episodes/rails-5-actioncable-websockets

                                      Thanks! I noticed that. For some reason on the camera it looks like it's in focus but then recording it's clearly not. I am definitely doing something wrong on our studio setup. :)

                                        Fantastic idea. I've been using ActiveAdmin a lot so I'd love to cover that but also how to make your own admin area and lock it down separately.

                                          Great idea. I built one of these for when I was learning Python and Django. It was a really good learning experience.

                                            Have any examples of data migration you'd like to see? I can think of taking a table and splitting it into multiple or consolidating multiple into one table or something.
