In my opinion, Rails is more robust than Express when it comes to managing the complexity of a large web application. For simple sites with only 5-10 pages, I would prefer a simple framework like Express, Connect, or Sinatra. However, once you're in the 20-50 pages, with admin section and need to support customer facing APIs, there are plenty of niceties in Rails to make those complicated parts easier to manage.

How about nodejs? Even that's is good and I think it's even better than the Rails.

Not sure I understand your response. Express and Connect are both Node.js frameworks.

It's correct but if something is worth learning, one can learn new tech stack too. Just saying.
