What is Ruby on Rails, and how does it work?
Ruby on Rails is a powerful and popular web application framework that allows developers to quickly build robust, scalable, and maintainable applications using the Ruby programming language by providing a set of conventions and tools for building web applications quickly and efficiently. It includes a wide range of features that can all be easily configured and customized to suit the needs of a specific application.
What are the advantages of using Ruby on Rails for development?
When it comes to web development, opting for Ruby on Rails can help you unlock the following advantages:
What are some successful applications that use Ruby on Rails?
RoR's ease of use, flexibility, and scalability make it a popular choice for startups, large enterprises, and everything in between. These popular apps were built with RoR:
What is the Convention over Configuration principle?
Convention over Configuration (CoC) is a software development convention central to the design of many modern web frameworks, including Ruby on Rails.
According to this principle, the structure and behavior of an application should follow the widely accepted conventions, rather than requiring developers to configure its every aspect. This means they can focus on the unique aspects of their application, rather than spending time on low-level details.
In the context of Ruby on Rails, the CoC principle provides sensible defaults for many aspects of an application's structure and behavior. This allows developers to quickly create functional applications without having to write repetitive, boilerplate code.
How does Ruby on Rails make it easy to blend different technologies and integrate third-party tools and libraries?
The following features of Rails facilitate blending different technologies and integrating third-party solutions:
What are some of the built-in features and tools of Ruby on Rails that make it easier to build, launch, and scale web applications?
Building, launching and scaling web apps is easy with Ruby on Rails thanks to the following:
Rails includes the Active Record ORM framework, which provides a high-level, intuitive way to interact with databases.
RoR includes the Action Controller framework, which provides a high-level, modular architecture that handles HTTP requests and responses.
This feature allows developers to write HTML and other markup using a templating language, and provides a range of built-in helpers for generating common UI elements.
RoR includes built-in caching features that allow developers to cache frequently accessed data and avoid redundant database queries. RoR provides a range of caching options, including page caching, action caching, and fragment caching.
RoR provides a range of tools and features to make deployment and scaling easier, including built-in support for cloud platforms like Heroku, as well as scaling an application horizontally as traffic grows.
Rails supports rapid application development (RAD) in the following ways:
Since Ruby on Rails is a flexible and versatile framework, it can be used for building web applications in a variety of situations. Here’s when you should consider RoR for your project:
