Adding jspm to a Rails app

6 February, 2015

Recent posts from Glen Maddern and Thoughtbot inspired me to try my hand at some ES6.

I put together a toy app using jspm and liked what I saw.

I then noticed that the latest beta release of React.js supports ES6 classes.

This led me to dust off an old side project that uses React.js and add jspm to it. The app is built using rails so I spent a little time working out a way to add jspm to that.

I’ve stayed away from the asset pipeline and placed the libraries and application Javascript managed by jspm in the public folder of the app directly.

I’ve extracted the results and placed them up on Github.
