hey @/all, DHH has favorited this and I think folks should take note and chime in - we might actually have a chance at getting opal in rails proper: https://twitter.com/eileencodes/status/1036959783465701377

hey @barriehadfield thanks! i think this is a great opportunity to get a lower entry point for opal in rails while also raising awareness and curiosity. i still see a lot of folks completely oblivious to opal.

Sounds interesting! Anyone with a prior experience of integrating Opal in a Rails app ? Any downfalls ?

Over in Hyperloop we've integrated it using any of Sprockets, Sprockets + Webpacker, and just Webpack.

I've done it a number of times, including our current app. My difficulty is finding pain points because I'm kinda too into it to see the problems clearly. I probably should try setting up a fresh rails app and see how it goes.
