Turbo-Rails is a bold new vision for Ruby on Rails™.

It is based on an old concept from the early days of computing — dating back to the 1970s. The concept is called “dumb terminals” and it means that the computer screen you use is for display only. In the ‘dumb terminal’ world, the majority of the computing will happen in the cloud.

For Turbo Rails apps, that means we'll render the HTML on the server, not in the client. When the client & server talk to one another, the server will send "HTML over the wire" (Hotwire) to change out parts of our page.

That's all part of Rails 7. Hot Glue is a tool you can use to build Turbo Rails 7 code very quickly and easily.

Unlike other scaffolding, once built, the code lives in your app and does not depend on Hot Glue. It is yours and you are free to customize it as you need.

Devise Built-In

Jump-starting your Rails development with the Devise Gem means the daunting task of authentication is already taken care of for you.

Even if you implement your own authentication or pick from the many good authentication gems available, Hot Glue provides a sophisticated access control model for building secure and performant UIs around your existing code.

Quickly Build Admin Interfaces and More

How frustrating are web interfaces that have clunky slow page reloads? How about non-intuitive errors that prevent entire flows from completing?

Rails Turbo and Hot Glue can make these problems a thing of the past.

Admin Interface Development

Build an admin UI based on your existing Rails database design and object graph.

Your admin interfaces are highly customizable, and come prebuilt with List + CRUD views.

Hot Glue automatically knows how to handle all kinds of fields (strings, integers, booleans, enums, etc).

Prototype on Steriods

Hot Glue even picks up on your foreign keys and displays related records as a drop-down choice shown by their assigned label.

You heard Ruby on Rails was a great way to start your project. You heard that you could move fast and get lots out of the box with very little upfront cost.

Iterate Quickly

That's all true about Rails on its own, but Hot Glue with Turbo Rails is like all the best of Rails scaffolding on steroids. Benefit today from the 17 years of conceptual compression in Ruby on Rails.

With such a variety of Gems and Rails engines in the ecosystem, Rails can be used for almost any project and by most developers at any skill level or learning stage. Using Hot Glue can help you level-up your game. You'll be able to prototype applications a record time. This will give you a competitive advantage.

The pros of Ruby on Rails outweigh the cons. Remember, being able to add or remove fields is absolute essential in the first, second, and third year of your startup or tech venture. That's why staying agile, tested, and in Rails makes sense for most new startups and ventures.

Startups, from small to large to large multinational corporations, are beginning to understand that Ruby on Rails is the best web framework for creating web applications quickly and efficiently. If you're new to the tech world when it comes to building apps and learning to code, Hot Glue is a perfect learning toolkit. As a rapid prototype development toolkit for building Rails scaffolding, Hot Glue is your ideal companion for prototyping your idea. The popularity of this framework has a lot to do with the Ruby on Rails gem that allows for rapid prototyping and testing, which really reduces the time to write applications so that new products can be brought to market faster.

Hot Glue will get you there even faster!
