I’m a returning Rails developer from the 4.2 days. Been out a couple years.
I used to use AWS Elastic Beanstalk, because we had other AWS resources that our app used.
But here I am in October 2020, trying to get even the Rails 6 “yay you’re on Rails” default app running on Beanstalk, and it’s an endless slog of deploy, fail, check the logs, google the error, try a fix, repeat.
Is Beanstalk the wrong solution now? How do people host Rails apps on AWS? I’ve never used containers - is that the approach I should take?
