Why Is Ruby on Rails So Popular?
1. Rails is full stack
Unlike other languages like HTML/CSS, Javascipt, and Python, Rails covers both front-end and back-end development. An RoR developer can build a full web application without relying on another resource (while learning the other languages along the way), which makes it popular with startup companies.
2. Rails is built on Ruby, a dynamic and object-oriented language
This programmer-friendly framework removes the “lame” tasks and gives developers more time to focus on what’s cool. From handling database connections (goodbye SQL) to processing Ajax updates, Rails puts the developer first.
3. Rails cuts down on time to market
Development is rapid in Ruby on Rails. Ruby “gems” make common functionalities like user management and social feeds easy to integrate, which makes it perfect for CRM, CMS, or E-Commerce systems.
4. Rails has a great online community
The Ruby on Rails community is one of the most active ones out there. There are tons of conferences and meetups going on in every major city almost every day of the week. This makes it easy to find help for any of your projects. There are also a lot of online resources to pick up on this beginner-friendly framework.
