This project is a Ruby on Rails application that features an interactive map powered by a JSON API rendered with Handlebars templates and supported by token authentication, Mapbox, Leaflet, and the Google Places API, all written in… · More object-oriented Coffeescript and jQuery. It's also got a full blog system that hooks into the data on the map to notify users by email when we've written about their submissions. Other goodies include social sign-in with OAuth, guest user accounts, plus Mailchimp and Instagram API integration. It's backed by a PostgreSQL database, and tuned for performance by taking advantage of background workers with Redis and Sidekiq to send emails and process image uploads, along with JSON caching, fragment caching, asset minification & compression, and eager loading. I also designed the front-end and styled it with Bourbon, Neat, and Bitters, with typography that falls on a proper baseline grid.
