#156 Turbo 8 Morphing in real life

hotwire frontend turbo8 morphing

Turbo 8 adds a new technique of sending HTML over the wire: refresh current page, preserve scroll.

This new approach opens EASYER ways to render elements on current page without passing too much context to TurboStreams.

👮‍♂️ however there some tricky scenarios that you should be aware of! 🚨

Level 1: We will try using PageRefreshes on a new Rails app.
Level 2: Use page refreshes to live-update nested comments in a real app.
