This is a new edition of an award-winning classic that has been updated for Rails 5.1 and Ruby 2.4, with information on system testing, Webpack, and advanced JavaScript.

There's also an extended tutorial that takes you through writing a web-based store application. The book has been developed in consultation with the Rails core team, and Rails itself is tested against the code in this book.
