For all the likes, shares, tweets, pokes, follows, and friends, there’s a fundamental core to the internet that will never go away–email. Ruby on Rails makes it easy to send email using ActionMailer, but receiving and parsing email in your app can still be a huge pain. Enter Griddler–a Rails engine by thoughtbot that makes it super simple to receive email in your application using SendGrid’s Inbound Parse Webhook.
- Show you how to set up Griddler in your Rails app
- Explain the Inbound Parse Webhook
- Answer all your burning questions about incoming email.
By the time the workshop is over, you’ll be receiving email in your Rails app like a pro!
