I was so wrong !


(Surya Poojary) #1

Hi my lovely rubyists,

Tried Ruby on rails today,I used to slam rails for over-shadowing ruby as a
language but I was so wrong. It was so naive of me to criticize rails
without trying it properly. After using it thoroughly, I can see why Rails
is synonymous with Ruby . Let's hope Rails gets better with every version.

Beautiful. Fast. Addictive.

Beautiful Ruby. Beautiful Rails

Yours sincerely,

Surya Poojary.

Ah. The old "try it, you'll like it". :wink:

After using it thoroughly, I can see why Rails
is synonymous with Ruby .

Oh, I hope it never really gets to the point of truly synonymous!
There's so much other things to Ruby, that a Rails app *may* use, but
not necessarily, even under the hood.

Looks to me like your pendulum has simply swung the other way.
Eventually you will come to a balance. Rails is certainly the "killer
app" of Ruby... but Rails would never have existed it Ruby had not had
enough excellent features to keep going from its birth to when Rails
was thought up. Even today, there is plenty one can do with Ruby,
without Rails... and both are improving every year.
