Cookies with purpose, Array extract! and more

Posted by morgoth85, August 18, 2018 @ 12:00 am in News

Welcome in this week news edition from Rails world. This is Wojtek bringing you summary of latest activities.

Once Webpacker is the default in rails/master, we’ll be unveiling the alpha version of a brand-new exciting framework for Rails 6.0 😄.

If you can’t wait, help us testing Webpacker integration so it can be merged and mystery revealed.

Add Purpose Metadata to Cookies

Adds purpose metadata to cookies so that the value of one cookie cannot be copied and used as the value of another cookie.

Add Array#extract!

The method removes and returns the elements for which the block returns a true value.

numbers = [1, 2, 3, 4]
odd_numbers = numbers.extract!(&:odd?) # => [1, 3]
numbers # => [2, 4]

Replace rake dev:cache with Rails command

Rake task is now deprecated in favor of “rails dev:cache”
