    I've asked for a ruby forum before. It resulted in the Other Programming Languages forum being created.

    Rails is nothing special, in fact there are better frameworks out there (i personally like turbogears right now (although it's python)).

    I agree, its nothing over special, but ror is an excellent framework when used in the right situation.

    You do the modelling yourself, and you don't write a single line of sql for creating or updating the database (which if you don't have a GUI to it for you is majorly tedious).

    python Code:
    class User:
        name = StringCol(maxlength=200)
        password = StringCol(maxlength=200)


    Now, with other options like EnumCol, PickleCol (Pickles are like Marshals in Ruby), BigNumCol etc. It's much easier than writing the sql. There's also one major advantage here.

    python Code:
        posts = MultipleJoin("Post")


    No worrying about keys, that does all the linking for you transparently. now when you create a User, you can do this

    python Code:
    for post in myUser.posts:
        print post.title
        print post.body


    or something.

    However, I've turned to django, since turbogears is a nightmare to set up.

    Django has a similar modelling phase. It's also got a ton of useful libraries. And the best part is the admin backend. Here's how you make an admin system in django...
    bash Code:
    django-admin.py install admin


    Check it out.
