I had a WIP project which involved using a node app and converting it into Ruby, then using React/Rails for front-end/back end stuff. Is this possible with Glitch?
Although it’s not officially supported, Ruby is installed, and you can use a custom
glitch.json to install and run your app.
@j-f Can you explain a little more about the structure of a
glitch.json file? I can’t find it being mentioned anywhere
I saw ruby is installed (2.3.1p112) and it works fine.
I’m trying to create a simple app using sinatra but all requests are considered as Bad URI. Any luck @braden337?
Here is the example that I made → pricey-laundry (what an excellent project name)
Thanks for this! And indeed, that was an excellent project name, I lol’d.
I was able to install and run Rails 5.1 too using the same configuration. Had to edit ~/.gemrc to avoid installing the docs from the gems since these instances have only 128mb, which can be a problem with Rails.
I also removed the --path from the install command since the gems installed with “bundle install” work too.
Here’s the running example: https://rails-5-1-example.glitch.me/
Also, the example is running with Puma so we can assume it works too.
This is great! Definitely giving it a go over the weekend.
