Little Esty Shop is a 10-day, 4 person project, during Mod 2 of 4 for Turing School's Back End Engineering Program.

Our challenge was to build a functioning web app consisting of multiple relational databases to model the popular e-commerce web site Etsy.

Learning goals and areas of focus consisted of:

  • Apply principles of flow control across multiple methods
  • Design a one to many relationship using a schema designer
  • Write migrations to create tables with columns of varying data types and foreign keys.
  • Use Rails to create web pages that allow users to CRUD resources
  • Create instance and class methods on a Rails model that use ActiveRecord methods and helpers
  • Write model and feature tests that fully cover data logic and potential user behavior

In this project, students will build upon the code in this repo to create a Pet Adoption Platform. Users will be able to apply to adopt pets, and Admins will be able to approve or reject applications and see statistics for the Shelters, Pets, and Applications in the system.

Build out CRUD functionality for a many to many relationship Use ActiveRecord to write queries that join multiple tables of data together Use MVC to organize code effectively, limiting the amount of logic included in views and controllers Validate models and handle sad paths for invalid data input Use flash messages to give feedback to the user Use partials in views Use within blocks in tests Track user stories using GitHub Projects Deploy an application to Heroku
