Hi guys, I recently made a post here about attempting to build a Tinder clone using Ruby on Rails 6. I've just released a new video \[part 2\] on my YouTube channel where I mostly post Rails content. I figured it would be worth sharing it here for others who are interested.
I cover setting up user accounts using the devise gem, add functionality for users to upload multiple photos to their account (image uploads using active storage, stored local in development environment and to Amazon S3 in production), then on the front end we build a slide show type interface where the user can click to filter through user profiles.
Added backend functionality for liking users and being liked back. Adding matching and display a list of accounts that we have matched with. Add a sidebar to show our profile image with links to our profile plus a list of matches underneath with a tab structure for Matches / Messages.
I'm planning to record and launch Part 3 in the next few days where I will try to finish the app off by adding messaging functionality between matched accounts and if we get time even add some extra features like unmatching / super like etc.
I'll post new web app builds on YouTube using Ruby on Rails so feel free to check out the channel and add some recommendations for upcoming builds.
