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

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).
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.
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
for post in myUser.posts:
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...
django-admin.py install admin
