Take Back Control of Your Rails Applications By Reorganizing Them Into Small, Logic And Maintainable Modules.

"I was looking for tips and shortcuts to organize my next rails app into modules. I have no regrets. Modular rails is a great guide that leverage the power of rails engines and other special tips that would have taken me months (or years!) to discover and implement by myself."

Heard of the Single Responsibility Principle?

"The single responsibility principle states that every module or class should have responsibility over a single part of the functionality provided by the software, and that responsibility should be entirely encapsulated by the class." - Wikipedia

While Ruby on Rails and its MVC implementation provide a great way to manage the different layers of an application, they do very little to help you organize your code. All your models, controllers, views and tests get thrown together under the same folders, with no separation of concerns.

This breaks the SRP principle at the module level. The logic for each feature in your application is spread accross multiple classes that end up handling way too much. That's how big applications become such a mess, and are hard to maintain and test.

But there is a way out...

Modular Rails Cover

Introducing Modular Rails, the course that will teach you how to split your application logic into smart encapsulated modules - which are easier to create, maintain and test. You also get numerous other advantages because this approach respects the separation of concerns principle.

The approach presented in the course uses Rails Engines to split each concern of your application into its own module, where it belongs.

Learn The Modular Approach

There are very few resources related to this approach. Learning how to do it right on your own would take months. But with Modular Rails, you will be ready to go in a matter of days! It's time to start organizing your applications in a smarter way.

Why did I create this course?

First of all, let me introduce myself - my name is Thibault Denizet.

One day, I was assigned the task of dividing a Rails application into reusable components. The idea behind this was to reuse some of these components in other, similar applications.

What I discovered was a new way to organize Rails applications, and not just in order to reuse parts of it. By using Rails engines, I was able to create modules to hold the application logic. Each module was encapsulated, isolated and tested. It was then just a matter of adding it to the application!

The first edition of Modular Rails was released in 2015. I've come a long way since then, and have refined the approach and improved the course.

The Book (Budget Option But Still Awesome!)

Don't underestimate the book. That's where I spent most of my time and it will teach you everything you need to know abbout modular applications.

The screencasts and the source code are really useful but if you don't mind a bit of extra work, you will be just fine with the book alone.

You will receive it in the following formats: HTML, PDF, EPUB and MOBI.

The Book (Budget Option But Still Awesome!)

Here's what you can look forward to...

What is a modular application?

Modular applications are built by combining a set of modules. You will learn how to build these modules and how to interface them together.

Rails Modular Architecture

A modular application can be structured in different ways. You will learn different architectures that can be used and the one I recommend.

Create a complete modular Rails application

Build SamuraiCRM, a modular and simple CRM, by following a detailed step-by-step guide. SamuraiCRM is composed of 3 modules: Core, Contacts and Tasks.

Extend and connect your modules

To create modules depending on other modules, they need to be extendable. You will learn what it means and how to extend Ruby on Rails components (MVC).

Maintain your modules

Creating a module is one thing but it’s just the first part. Learning how to update your modules and dealing with their source code is mandatory.

Create a private gem server

You should be able to easily access the modules you create, right? Else, what’s the point? Learn how to create a private gem server to store your modules safely.

How this course is empowering web developers across the world...

"I got modular rails because I was interested in moving from a monolithic app and interested in advancing my knowledge of intermediate to advanced rails. As a guy who teaches at a bootcamp, there comes a time when you want students to move from the usual CRUD nonsense and on to proper software architectural patterns even in the context of a framework. I shared the table of contents with a colleague of mine from the US and he too agreed that this book was the deal. Can't wait to get more from the author."

Alvin

"Awesome book! This book is great and easily understandable even for beginners. I'd recommend it to any developer who wishes to learn the concept of modularity."

"As a classic Rails developer who never had the opportunity to experience the joy of modularity, Modular Rails helped me dive into the subject and start to build from scratch my first modular application. This book definitely fills a much needed gap in Rails literature."

"Imagine a Ruby on Rails application composed of several modules you can plug in or out according to your needs the same way Wordpress can do with plugins. This book will teach you exactly that. Great book to have in your collection!"
