Autoglym Product Reviews, Now Get Replies

Screen shot 2015 07 24 at 19.44.26

I wanted to feature some work that I did on the Autoglym app today, specifically adding some minor functionality within Spree. Having spent about 7-months rebuilding a Rails 2.x eCommerce site in Rails 4 means this was a nice change of pace.

The Autoglym app already associates user reviews with products, and today I simply associated those reviews with a reply, so that AG staff can reply to reviews (especially negative feedback?). Part of the scoped work called for Markdown support, which I baked in quite quickly thanks to the excellent Redcarpet gem.

On the frontend, it's some simple SASS styling and visibility logic baked into the view partial. Rather pleased that I was able to turn this around a bit quicker than originally estimated in the 'sprint' scope as well.
