Project Description

In our application users can submit three types of content. Each type of content has it’s own index page. On each index page we list the items. For each item in the list we have a delete link. Currently upon clicking delete this spawns a confirmation alert and then a full page refresh upon deletion.

We would like the behavior to be:

User clicks delete

Confirmation dialog is spawned.

Request to delete is sent asynchronously. No page refresh.

Entry is removed visually from the dom.

Success flash message is displayed saying ‘Deleted successfully’.

Users placement on the page is kept. This is so that in case they are halfway down the page the user remains there.


You must be familiar with ruby and rails development. Must be familiar with either cucumber and/or rspec testing frameworks as we require tests to be created to prove that the features work.

You must also be familiar with git and have a github account as that is how work will be delivered to us.

This is a small project that will help us get this needed functionality into our web application. This project is also a way for us to build a relationship for future work with the accepted candidate. This will get you familiar with our web application and open up the way for future ongoing work with us.
