JSON API v1 with Rails 3 - Intro08 Jul 2017
Time undoes all, or so they say! Ruby on Rails 3 may be a relic, but it is far from gone. Just when I thought I was done with Rails 3; I took over another Rails 3 project a couple weeks ago as part of an UpWork contract. The primary job was to implement an API in compliance with JSON API v1 specifications.
My first impression was to update the application to Rails 5. But I chose to go for the API first, because…
- The app is fairly large (150 models and 100 controllers)
- I noticed some code that will break in rails 4/5 upgrade
- Poor test coverage and existing tests not running without some fixing
- The app is live (obviously)
- The API was urgent
I did a lot of research off the clock and I thought of writing them down hoping it will save some time of another.
I will breakdown my experience to few articles and link them below as I write them.
