Create Web Apps Faster With Ruby on Rails 3.2

By HTMLGoodies Staff

The folks behind Ruby on Rails recently announced the release of Ruby on Rails 3.2, which features several improvements which allow a more rapid application development process. Ruby on Rails is an open source web app framework that is used for the creation of web pages that are based on the Ruby scripting language.

The creator of Ruby on Rails, David Heinemeier Hansson, discussed the improvements added to the development mode in this release, stating that "The new faster dev mode in particular is a major step up over 3.1." By only reloading classes that have changed during the development process, rather than all the classes the program uses, the program's speed is vastly improved. As Hansson put it, "The difference is dramatic on a larger application."

According to stats from the Australian BuiltWith Trends Pro analysis service, at least 226,000 websites are using Ruby on Rails, although its use is slipping slightly as the popularity of JavaScript has grown along with the use of HTML5.
