What is Ruby on Rails?

Ruby on Rails or just Rails for short is a Web Framework of Ruby language created by David Heinemeier Hansson. Rails was built to support developers to develop web software as quickly as possible.

Rails framework was created as an answer to other web frameworks such as J2EE, .NET. In order for the software development process to take place faster, Rails uses thorough rules and undertakes so very many tasks that the programmers do not have to worry about them anymore, like: mail management, object-database mappers, files structures, code generation, etc. These are the two most outstanding features of Rails, which not only help programmers write fewer codes, develop applications faster but also make applications become easier to understand and maintain.

Like most other Web frameworks, Rails uses Model – View – Controller (MVC) architecture patterns to enhance the maintainability and development of applications.
