This topic is being initially managed outside this discourse document in a repository RADC - Redwood Applications Development Cookbook.
Please check the RADC repository issues to find more detailed information on what is being discussed, summarized, etc. Upon common agreement, the continuation will be in this original Discourse discussion.
A few brief explanations:
I am proposing to conduct the initial discussion, questions, offer better ideas etc. in the RADC repository rather than in this thread. I am expecting lots of comments (being always optimistic) so this can be scaled better in a whole repository than in a single Discourse thread.
Since we have pretty diversified communication channels, I am proposing to send all information about an article you want to contribute in an email to RADC@congral.com (this is a temporary email address until we create Redwood owned infrastructure (probably when @thedavid returns back.
Please use the pattern below to define your contribution (it lists the contributors name, the content of the contribution and the tools to be used). While this Cookbook is initially focused on code created in the Redwood Tutorial, this is not an absolute requirement.
The original Tandem Application is retired as of this time, announcing only that the transition to the RADC is being prepared:
Time for a real (while small) celebration is in place: a very real first article by @realStandal is deployed to: how to reinstall RW?. Note that it would be hard to find an author with a better github name than @realStandal.
RADC as created on May 29
It is quite difficult to estimate the community interest for this project. Initially it was not clear (at all) what is the aim of this project. In discussion with several core team members I was told that there is a fear to load the core team with another, not existing until recently, large documentan project. Let’s remove that fear.
The main point of RADC is to organize RW customers (developers not on core team) to write additional documentation from the application developers views and interests. This approach (if succeeds) will make RedwoodJS even more appealing to folks, targeted by RW’s motto:
Redwood is the open source, full-stack web framework designed to help you grow from side project to startup.
Due to lack of any response by anyone, I will complete the article tracing code so I can share my ideas on how a “cookbook” article could be written - including the full script (see the script for the movie Big Sick as an example what a script is; the script for
tracing code will not be as detailed, and I will use the critical eyes of @dthyresson for the criteria of how detailed it will be
Note: the script will be written in RADC Wiki - as a script for application tracing article.
How quick the time flies it’s already June 8, and I spent all the time since last update learning Stripe, so I could join the Redwood Stripe project. I will be back here as soon as I make at least a small contribution there.
As I took a sidestep to help with remaining issues with Redwood Stripe integration and Redwood Stripe example store projects, I run into pretty nasty problems in the
React sections of the code. What a great example to show the efficacy of the debugging this code in the situation where I have no idea what went wrong (most likely a bad invocation of React runtime).
Since this issue is a great fit for this RADC I wonder whether somebody would like to participate in this nearly live exercise? If yes, please state your interest in the reply to this notice and I will create a full post on this
After spending several weeks trying to help the example store stripe project, I run into several issues that led me to believe that I need to revert back to RADC and share my new learnings about Stripe Redwood integration and the use of PostgreSQL tools in the process of installation / uninstallation of PostgreSQL: The World’s Most Advanced Open Source Relational Database.
Finished the draft of the article Install PostgreSQL - it might be of use to anyone like @Isaac-Tait who needed more information about installing and using PostgreSQL database, than what is available in the RedwoodJS Tutorial.
This RADC project is still around, mildly comatose, because I did not provide enough article that would indicate the intent for writing them. So far, there are five developers, stating interest to work on new articles:
Even 20% success in my initial role as a community organizer:
Community organizing is a process where people who live in proximity to each other or share some common problem come together into an organization that acts in their shared self-interest.
will get RADC forward - so please step in contact me any way you prefer and propose any article that you find of use to the community of Redwood application developers.
RADC discussions will continue here once we reach a good definition of this project in RADC repository.
