Commands I often run:

rubocop -a // auto correct and check for style errors
brakeman // check for security issues
rubycritic // looks for code smells and complexity
bundler-audit // audit your gems

Install Rspec:

file location: spec/rails_helper.rb

Setup Rspec:

Running Test:

Notice that coverage folder is created.

Generate First Page:

Modify Routes:

File location: config/routes.rb

Running webpacker server for live updates.


Update views for React:

File location: app/views/pages/index.html.erb

File location: app/views/layouts/application.html.erb

This should have Hello React! displayed and if you change the jsx file it should live update.
