🎉 An exciting new way to build modern, reactive, real-time apps with Ruby on Rails.

StimulusReflex eliminates the complexity imposed by full-stack frontend frameworks. And, it's fast.

It works seamlessly with the Rails tooling you already know and love.

Our goal is to help small teams do big things with familiar tools.

This project strives to live up to the vision outlined in The Rails Doctrine.

👩‍👩‍👧 Discord Community

Please join over 2000 of us on Discord for support getting started, as well as active discussions around Rails, Hotwire, Stimulus, Phlex and CableReady.

Stop by #newcomers and introduce yourselves!

💙 Support

Your best bet is to ask for help on Discord before filing an issue on GitHub. We are happy to help, and we ask people who need help to come with all relevant code to look at. A git repo is preferred, but Gists are fine, too. If you need a template for reproducing your issue, try this.

Please note that we are not actively providing support on Stack Overflow. If you post there, we likely won't see it.
