Why Ruby On Rails Is the Best Languages For Developing Web Applications


Ruby on rails is a framework that makes it easier to develop,deploy and in addition help in the maintenance  of web applications. Since , it release ruby on rails has become the framework of choice for many professional developers.

Many developers were fustrated with the technologies they were using to create web applications. Languages like php and ASP.net were making there work too way hard. After ,it release many professional developers opted to ruby on rails as it was easy.

Professional developers  wanted to feel that the applications they were developing would stand the test of time—that they were designed and implemented using modern, professional techniques. So, these developers dug into Rails and discovered it was a great tool for developing real world web applications.

Below are some of the reasons why many professional devs opted to ruby on rails:

Model-ViewController (MVC) architecture 

Java developers are used to frameworks such as Tapestry and Struts, which are based on MVC. But Rails takes MVC further: when you develop in Rails, you start with a working application, there’s a place for each piece of code, and all the pieces of your application interact in a standard way. 

Tests Support

Professional programmers write tests. And again, Rails delivers. All Rails applications have testing support baked right in. As you add functionality to the code, Rails automatically creates test stubs for that functionality. The framework makes it easy to test applications, and as a result, Rails applications tend to get tested. 

Ruby is a object oriented programming language

Rails applications are written in Ruby, a modern, object-oriented scripting language. Ruby is concise without being unintelligibly terse. You can express ideas naturally and cleanly in Ruby code. This leads to programs that are easy to write and (just as important) are easy to read months later. 

Simple code

Rails takes Ruby to the limit, extending it in novel ways that make a programmer’s life easier. This makes our programs shorter and more readable. It also allows us to perform tasks that would normally be done in external configuration files inside the codebase instead. This makes it far easier to see what’s happening. 

Developers coming to Rails found something else, too. Rails doesn’t merely play catch-up with the de facto web standards; it helps define them. And Rails makes it easy for developers to integrate features such as Ajax, RESTful interfaces, and WebSockets into their code because support is built in. (And if you’re not familiar with Ajax, REST interfaces, or WebSockets.

Rails is agile

Over the years since Rails was introduced, the term agile has gone from being relatively unknown, to being overhyped, to being treated as a formal set of practices, to receiving a well-deserved amount of pushback against formal practices that were never meant to be treated as gospel, to a return back to the original principles. But it’s more than that. The reason is both simple and subtle. Agility is part of the fabric of Rails. 

Developers are worried about deployment too. They found that with Rails, you can deploy successive releases of your application to any number of servers with a single command (and roll them back equally easily should the release prove to be somewhat less than perfect). Rails was extracted from a real-world, commercial application.

 It turns out that the best way to create a framework is to find the central themes in a specific application and then bottle them up in a generic foundation of code. When you’re developing your Rails application, you’re starting with half of a really good application already in place. 


But there’s something else to Rails—something that’s hard to describe. Somehow, it feels right. Of course, you’ll have to take our word for that until you write some Rails applications for yourself.
