This course will be retired on April 30, 2018. We recommend "Ruby on Rails 5 Basics" for up-to-date content.
Bummer! This is just a preview. You need to be signed in with a Pro account to view the entire video.
In this stage, we'll learn how to implement the common pattern of "Remember Me" functionality in to our application.

In this course, we're going to be designing an existing Rails application
called ODOT and adding functionality to it.
ODOT allows you to sign up and
log in to create to do lists, add items to those lists, and manage them.
>> This course will enhance that application by adding functionality
to automatically sign in by clicking a remember me check box.
We'll also add the CSS framework Zurb Foundation to the Rails app by
using the official Foundation Rails Gem and then begin to style the application.
>> In the process we'll learn how to install libraries
in our Rails application, work with the official Rails documentation, and
also learn about templating with Rails.
>> If you'd like to follow along with building the application,
there are several other course on Treehouse that cover that process.
You can also download the project files attached to this video.
Since we're going to be working with Ruby on Rails, it's important to have it
