In contrast, Matestack helps Rails developers creating modern, reactive web apps while focusing on simplicity, developer happiness and productivity:
Use Ruby’s amazing language features while creating your UI
Skip using templating engine syntax and write pure Ruby instead
Create a single application, managing the full stack from database to a reactive UI in pure Ruby
Drastically reduce the complexity of building reactive web applications
Additionally, most of Matestack does not require Action Cable or Redis, but can optionally use the power of these tools.
Matestack currently offers two open source Ruby gems:
matestack-ui-core ships all you need to build reactive UIs in pure Ruby. You have to take care of styling and additional UI components yourself.
matestack-ui-bootstrapships all you need to build beautiful, reactive UIs in pure Ruby and smart CRUD components based on Bootstrap v5. Don't think about styling anymore and just create admin or application UIs faster than ever before! --> https://matestack.gitbook.io/matestack-ui-bootstrap
matestack-ui-bootstrap are automatically tested against:
Rails 6.1.1 + Ruby 3.0.0
Rails 6.1.1 + Ruby 2.7.2
Rails 220.127.116.11 + Ruby 2.6.6
Rails 18.104.22.168 + Ruby 2.6.6
matestack-ui-core requires Vue.js and Vuex for its reactivity features. Following version ranges are supported:
matestack-ui-core is designed to be installed via Npm or Yarn and bundled via something like Webpacker together with all your other dependencies.
