It's been almost two decades since Rails emerged, taking the world by storm. Writing full-stack applications was never so easy. One could literally build a blog engine in 15 minutes. Back then, what was considered full-stack was mainly in the back-end. It was about writing database queries and generating HTML as a result.
Fast forward to the year 2021. We have witnessed the Renaissance era of front-end development, with tools like Angular, React, Vue and Svelte. And however, building software today is not as easy as it was a decade ago. These days, customers expect a snappy and interactive website. Customers expect best-in-class accessibility. And with that, customers still need the core of your business to work, and to be working great.
Some approaches were already taken to make front-end engineering closer to what we have known in the Rails days. Solutions like Next.js immediately comes to mind. These solutions are mostly about Single Page Applications, where you want to host your website statically. Most solutions are also tied to a specific deployment target.
