Utilizing the Attributes of Ruby on Rails for Ayoka Web Development
Ruby on Rails is an open source framework for custom web development. As a framework, Ruby on Rails follows the MVC (model, view, controller) design pattern. It is designed to speed up the time to develop database backed web applications, thereby lowering the cost for custom web development.
Here are some attributes of Ruby on Rails that can improve your software application:
- Convention over configuration – through naming conventions (e.g. classes are singular, tables are plural), Ruby on Rails reduces the repetitive writing of configuration tasks. Less code means less potential for bugs.
- Full-Stack Web Framework – this is a concept that ensures that the web development MVC (model view controller) layers are designed to work together. This reduces the effort of explicitly configuring each component to exchange information with another.
- One Language – All elements from the business logic (domain model) to configuration files are written in the Ruby programming language. Using one language makes it easier to focus on the syntax and semantics, without juggling between multiple languages during web development.
- Runtime changes – Web and software developers can add methods to a class or to an instance of a class at runtime, so that one instance can act differently than other instances of the same class. This makes it easier to perform a web improvement project, by cutting downtime associated with compiling, deploying, and restarting after a website upgrade.
