Rails is a full-stack framework for developing database-backed web applications according to the Model-View-Control pattern. From the Ajax in the view, to the request and response in the controller, to the domain model wrapping the database, Rails gives you a pure-Ruby development environment. To go live, all you need to add is a database and a web server.
Who is already on Rails?
Everyone from start-ups to non-profits to enterprise organizations is using Rails. Rails is all about infrastructure, so it’s a great fit for practically any type of web application Be it software for collaboration, community, e-commerce, content management, statistics, management, you name it.
What else do I need?
Rails works with a wide range of web servers and databases. For the web server, we recommend Apache, Lighttpd, or ngine proxying to Mongrel (or Use FastCGI). For database, you can use MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, Oracle, SQL Server, DB2, or any of the other many systems we support. Just about any operating system will do, but we recommend a ‘nix-based one for deployment.
