created by yukihiro matsumoto quite a while ago but getting developer excited for all sorts of reasons.
ruby lang is the base site for getting ruby and information about ruby.
a dynamic, open source programming language with a focus on simplicity and productivity. it has an elegant syntax that is natural to read and easy to write.
ruby on rails
is an open-source web framework and lets you write it quickly. again a lot of buzz about this and talk of it being a j2ee killer, well maybe. closely allied with agile development
jruby at is an 100% pure-java implementation of the ruby programming language.
rubygems rubygems is the premier ruby packaging system. it provides:
a standard format for destributing ruby programs and libraries., an easy to use tool for managing the installation of gem packages., a gem server utility for serving gems from any machine where rubygems is installed.
rubyforge is a home for open source ruby projects shed loads of ruby gems
radrails radrails is an eclipse-based ruby on rails ide.
what is mongrel? mongrel is a fast http library and server for ruby that is intended for hosting ruby web applications of any kind using plain http rather than fastcgi or scgi. it is framework agnostic and already supports ruby on rails, og+nitro, camping, and iowa frameworks.
camping a microframework
camping is a web framework which consistently stays at less than 4kb of code. you can probably view the complete source code on a single page. but, you know, itâ€˜s so small that, if you think about it, what can it really do?
the idea here is to store a complete fledgling web application in a single file like many small cgis. but to organize it as a model-view-controller application like rails does. you can then easily move it to rails once youâ€˜ve got it going.
