Create a Contact Form in Rails 5
This is a complete, step-by-step tutorial showing how to create a fully functional contact form in production in rails 5. Rather than reinvent things, the following borrows from the best available documentation and tutorials (most notably, this tutorial on making a contact form in development). The finished contact form can be viewed here.
This tutorial uses:
- heroku for deployment,
- gmail for the mailer, and
- github for version control
It would be a good idea to create a new gmail account to use for your mailer now, if you haven't already. If you haven't yet got a heroku account and installed the heroku CLI, it would be easiest to do so now.
