What is Ruby on Rails?
The short description. Ruby is a programming language, and Ruby on Rails or referred to as Rails, is a framework built in Ruby.
Ruby on Rails is a server-side backend application. It aims to make it easier to create web applications. It establishes default structures for your code, your application’s database, and the web pages your application will display to clients. It serves information to clients’ programs (web browsers) via a web server.
David Heinemeier Hanson is the creator of Ruby on Rails. He stated that Ruby was his preferred programming language, as it was simple, straightforward, and supports high-level software engineering patterns, unlike PHP, which he had tried.
One way to visualize Ruby and Ruby on Rails is like a carpenter. You can imagine Ruby as someone cutting down trees, sawing wood, carving shelves, and screwing in nails or screws. For example, whatever the carpenter will build, a chair can represent the Rails. With Ruby, the parts are ready for assembly. With Rails, it is your responsibility to assemble them correctly into something useful.
