The Tech Stack

For simple interfaces we use pretty vanilla Ruby on Rails. For more complex interfaces we?ve historically layered Angular on top of Rails backed by Restful API?s but we no desire to write Angular moving forward. We have a separate single page application built with React, Redux and GraphQL and we experimenting with Typescript, preact and Jest. We love ES6&7 and Typescript and we have significant experience with React and Redux.
