Ruby on Rails

Ruby on Rails implements web applications quickly and efficiently

Ruby on Rails is a framework that lets dynamic websites based on databases be developed relatively quickly. The framework focuses on access to the database and takes a large part of the necessary programming work off of the developer.

Ruby on Rails is not a stand-alone language, but rather a framework based on the scripting language Ruby. Ruby on Rails and Ruby are open source projects. This means that their source code is freely available.

The framework is ideal for Web 2.0 applications with community functions such as blogs, ratings and similar applications. Ruby on Rails is characterised by a model-view-controller architecture. This means there is a clear separation between data, its processing and its display. Thanks to this division, the developed web applications are easy to manage.

A framework for dynamic websites

Ruby on Rails has set the goal of saving the developer as much work as possible, by reducing redundant development activity as much as possible. This means that repetitive code and repetitive steps are avoided in the framework. If that doesn’t work, then there are mechanisms ready to deal with redundancy. In addition, there is default behaviour for aspects to be configured: the developer only needs to configure it themselves in exceptional cases. This reduces error-prone configurations to a minimum. These principles make Ruby on Rails into a framework that lets web applications be realised quickly and efficiently.
