    I don't like this one at all. Maybe the naive first go at it was deliberately bad? I couldn't tell.

    Ryan Bates did an episode on this kind of thing back in 2011 that is a bit dated now but it's still a good base to work from.

    I've just pushed a simple implementation of infinite scroll without having to click on the button. Please check the GitHub repository again:

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Screencasts from Basecamp are one of the best on Code School. This guy has code spirit. Provide more like this please.

    Good! We've created a gem based on the will_paginate gem. Hope it helps someone:

About This Screencast

In this episode of Feature Focus, Gregg Pollack and Carlos Souza walk you through their creation of Basecamp's infinite scroll functionality. They're joined by David Heinemeier Hansson, the founder and CTO of Basecamp (and creator of Ruby on Rails), who provides feedback on their feature implementation.

Feature Focus is a screencast series focused on practical feature builds and development problem solving. Watch as we build out well-known site features in a simple way and then sit down with the original product developer to get feedback on our implementation.
