In a previous episode, we had created a custom ActionCable channel to assist in broadcasting updates from a background job. With the introduction of Turbo, we can simplify this process as we look at a few different approaches in displaying a progress bar with real time updates from background jobs.
With the release of Turbo 7.2, we gained the ability to create custom actions in Turbo. This allows us to trigger functions on the client side that would have been difficult or cumbersome to do in the past. In this episode, we look at setting up custom actions and how to use them.
