re: A Guide to Using Ruby on Rails Application Templates VIEW POST


Cool stuff, Andy. Recently, I've also been thinking about forking and customizing Suspenders gem to create my own Rails app template. Having a template is like taking Rails a step further in the sense that you can even take more advantage of the framework.

And it's also very repetitive every time a new project starts to configure and install gems and the like.

Yours and Jumpstart look really great though I'm wondering if Tailwind can be used alonside bootstrap?

Anyway, great stuff and thanks for sharing!


Hey Francisco!

I use templates in my own projects primarily for teaching. If you find yourself creating and configuring a lot of new apps often, these application templates are perfect.

You certainly could use Tailwind and Bootstrap together but I feel the weight of all that CSS might make the site/app a bit sluggish.
