I really love Ruby on Rails API's so I made a guide here --> [https://github.com/johncorderox/Rails-API-React-Tutorial](https://github.com/johncorderox/Rails-API-React-Tutorial)
that goes from downloading rails into a virtualbox + vagrant server so you can code in your own clean environment, as well as React JS. It goes through creating a basic rails model to connect to our react component as well as connecting them to make requests.
In the following days I'll beef up the tutorial with more photos, in-depth explanations and more gems like Rack::Attack and learning about caching, JWT's, and blacklisting IP's.
It would be awesome if you could star it and/or fork it. You can always contribute as well by just making a pull request. Thanks!!! Happy coding!!
