This talk will present an example of a web-application implementation using JQuery-UI, JQuery, and Bootstrap to provide impressive front side pages connected to the Rails backend server. Due to various problems, it is not so easy to build an excellent web app with a state-of-the-art front-end framework and the latest Rails platform. The most straightforward way to realize such an application with attractive user interfaces working with the Rails server is to operate the Rails server in API mode and make the front-side and the server communicate using AJAX. However, the developers must confront several difficulties, such as security protection, preventing vulnerabilities, etc. This talk will introduce some examples to avoid such obstacles to implementing an attractive web app by showing a practical case the presenter recently created.
