Ask anybody to name a Ruby frameworks and most people will answer ‘Ruby on Rails’. If you ask for a smaller framework, they’ll probably answer ‘Sinatra’ (which technically isn’t a framework it’s a Domain Specific Language, but let’s not get too technical). Rails and Sinatra are the darlings of the Ruby web development world. Together, they seem to have all the bases covered, which I concluded in this post. Given the success of these two ‘frameworks’, is there a need for any others?
