rails + webpacker + webpack-dev-server + vue + remote dev vps and nginx

Process goes something like this:

bundle update webpacker
rails webpacker:binstubs
yarn upgrade @rails/webpacker@4.0.0-pre.2 # or 'add' instead of upgrade
yarn upgrade webpack-dev-server@"'3.1.4'  # or 'add' instead of upgrade
yarn add webpack-cli

bundle exec rails webpacker:install # don't do this! the scrpit seems to overwrite the @rails/webpacker version to 3.5.3

remote dev VPS webpack-dev-server nginx setup

Remote Dev machine webpack-dev-server HMR + static serving combo

Make sure you have port 8080 (or whatever you use) open on the remote machine!! Don't be like Vinney.

I'm no webpack expert (in fact this is the first project I've set up by hand ever...), but if you know what you're doing you should be able to change the relevant parts of this to fit your project:

# webpack.config.js

module.exports = {

Forking how-to with descriptions
View fork_you.markdown


essentially like cloning on github's servers - but that's inconsequential, mostly.. also: forks are not automatically up to date (relative to repo you forked)! your fork creates a snapshot of the original repo at the time you fork it.

  • fork on github

  • creates a clone on github servers

  • copy url of that clone

  • git clone [url]

    • clones the content of your fork to your local machine

items in front of you

jar is an object in front of you. It is tall and from above looks like a circle.

a jar has stuff in it. there can be either peanut butter, which is brown in color, or jelly, which is purple in color. peanut butter jar and jelly jar. a jar has three parts - the inner stuff is one, and the outer stuff is in two pieces: the top and the bottom. you can see the division between the two parts. the bottom is the part that is facing down, the top is facing up.

bag of bread is an object in front of you. it has two parts - an outer container and an inner material. the bag is the container and what is inside in the bread. there are many nearly-identical items that are all bread. they are individually called slices. a slice of bread is an individual item.

knife is another object in front of you. it is the only remaining object. it is silver in color and has the shape of a wide line. there are two ends to it handle and blade. the handle is the thicker end. the blade
