Game Review Zone (update)

GRZ Updated

Gaming Review Zone (GRZ - Pronounced as Gears) is a simple web app where you can create reviews about video games. I've created and built this project with Sinatra so I thought upgrading the code in Rails would be great idea!

The Process

I worked with Ruby on Rails along with ActiveRecord. I used devise to create my User class which added all of my user authentication.

I've created my Reviews and Games class and formed the has_many, belongs_to, and has_many_through relationship between them. I've added validations and a custom validation.

# app > models > game.rb

  has_many :reviews
  has_many :users, through: :reviews

  validates :title, presence: true, uniqueness: true
  validates :title, length: { maximum: 35 }
  validate :is_title_case

  def is_title_case
    if title.split.any?{|w|w[0].upcase != w[0]}
      errors.add(:title, "must be in title case")
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

I've added Omniauth to the authentication system so users can be able to sign in with Google. I've added all of the necessary nested and non-nested routes in the config/routes directory.

# nested route

 resources :games do 
    resources :reviews, only: [:new, :show]
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode


Being so comfortable with Sinatra, transitioning to Rails was a little tough. After working on this project, I was able to grasp it more. There's still so much to learn, but once again I've proved to myself that I can stick through.
JavaScript here I come! ✨
