    question about ruby on rails

    Hello,

    There is a programming language called PHP. There is a "framework" called Wordpress. It uses PHP and it is very popular.

    Is "Ruby on Rails" a framework?

    Basically, I'm wondering if Rails is Ruby's equivalent to PHP's Wordpress. Like, you don't really need "Rails" to program in Ruby. It's more like a helper tool rather than a requirement.

    Yes Ruby on Rails" is a framework. Like many web frameworks, Ruby on Rails uses the MVC (Model-View-Controller) architecture pattern to organize application programming. Ruby on Rails is separated into various packages, namely ActiveRecord (an object-relational mapping system for database access), Active Resource (provides web services), Action Pack, Active Support and Action Mailer. Prior to version 2.0, Ruby on Rails also included the Action Web Service package that is now replaced by Active Resource. Apart from standard packages, developers can make plugins to extend existing packages.

    Yes, Ruby on Rails is an open source full-stack web application framework for the Ruby programming language, meaning that it gives the full ability to web developer to collect knowledge from the World Wide Web server, speaking to or querying the database.

    I'm learning Ruby first via Lynda.com tutorial videos and Code Academy. Then, I'm moving onto Ruby on Rails via Lynda.com.

    Wordpress is a CMS, built using PHP.
    Ruby on Rails is a framework, built using Ruby.

    I understand enough to contribute this much.

    Cheers.

    Yes ruby on rails is a framework based on ruby.

    It is HIGHLY recommended you stay away from ruby on rails. Programmers tend to over charge (and this language is extremely simple to use).
    All websites should be based on (PHP, python), or C++.

    This is from 2011, and why should "All" websites be PHP/python/c++ ?

    I code C hash-tag .Net
