Sample Rails app with isomorphic React components

This is a simple proof-of-concept Rails app that uses the 1.x prerelease version of the react-rails gem, which lets us:

  • render React components server side
  • mount the same React component on top of the server-rendered DOM client side (via an unobtrusive JS adapter)

The app displays a photo with simple list of comments and a form for adding new comments. New comments are added via Ajax, but if JS fails to load (which you can test with

?js=broken
), the form submits via a full page refresh.

To get the app running:

  • bundle install
  • rake db:migrate
  • rails server
