Ruby on Rails is an open-source software that users can use to develop applications and collaborate to change their code. What is Ruby on Rails used for? They focus on optimizing their system for the programmers, choosing convention over configuration, which has been risky but certainly works.
The core of Hotwire is the Turbo gem. It is a set of complementary techniques that speed up page navigation and form submission by breaking complex pages into components and transmitting partial page updates over the WebSocket.
Hotwire has a simple operation: it uses Server Side Representation (SSR) to resolve problems associated with SPAs. SSR reverses the rendering process and can offer users accelerated application loading. It also helps deal with SEO issues like indexing. It's simple to use, you only need a default package from a Rails project, a Turbo gem, and Redis to store temporary data, no need to learn other languages.
When used in an app or website built with Ruby on Rails, Hotwire's built-in Turbo function wraps around any link or form submission, "hijacking" the link or submission to the server. This server receives the request knowing that it is not coming from the page, but from Turbo, rendering the page as it normally would and returning a full-page HTML.
Hotwire is one of the preferred tools for Ruby on Rails developers when it comes to creating fast web pages or applications without writing too much repetitive code. It is a tool that our developers at Rootstack have used numerous times and it has helped us finish our projects fast.
