Here’s an somewhat unconventional approach to drag and drop sorting using acts_as_list I came up with this week. In the old days, I would have implemented something similar to this RailsCasts episode. But I think I might like this better.
I made a YouTube video explaining my thinking.
As Chris Oliver notes, it’s probably best to use Signed Global IDs to avoid users tampering with model names and IDs.
<div class="mx-auto max-w-2xl">
<div class="flex justify-between items-end pb-4 border-b border-gray-100 my-6">
<h3 class="flex items-center text-xl leading-none font-semibold h-8">
<div class="space-y-1" data-controller="sortable" data-sortable-url-value="<%= list_insertions_path %>">
<%= render @pages %>
