A productive framework has changed the rules of web development.
Ruby on Rails is a framework innovation: it contains all the ingredients needed to quickly build a performance web application. It is a tool designed in the spirit of agile development to bring productivity and flexibility to development teams.
Based on the Ruby development language, it has revolutionized the world of web development through its pragmatic approach.
The Ruby on Rails philosophy can be summed up in two principles:
• “Never again” and saves time, concentration and reduces code size.
• “Convention on configuration”: It is better to use the conventions than to spend time configuring.
The advantages of Ruby on Rails:
1 – Develop faster
• Ruby on Rails is a compact language that provides a clear and concise syntax: it produces less code than its competitors.
• Less code to produce, so less time to code, less error prone, less code to maintain.
• Integrated tools for the automation of repetitive tasks: creation of a form, management of database error handling…
• Developments are simpler because the code is light and easy to read, the closest possible human syntax.
2 – Gain productivity
Everything has been designed to minimize the development part of a project and maximize the creativity and originality part of the project. Developers focus on design instead of reinventing the wheel with each new project. They are gaining more productivity by eliminating repetitive tasks and finding pleasure in programming.
3 – Check the quality of the code
Ruby on Rails has a built-in testing framework that checks code quality. With each new code change, it is verified and validated. Errors are reported as they are scheduled and can be corrected quickly. This ensures high code quality.
4 – Create interactive interfaces
5 – Structuring development
Ruby on Rails is based on the “Model-View-Controller” design template that separates application from data, presentation, and treatment. This requires the programmer to better structure the application and the code in a logical and consistent way. This encourages a higher level of abstraction in application programming, thanks to high-level functions to focus on features rather than details.
