Yep, as a one-man-show, it's tough to argue there are a lot of better options that allow for more productivity/hour than RoR.

If I find myself in a situation working on something that has 1mm connections simultaneously, sure, I'll use Elixir. But to spin up a CRUD app, which honestly, are still to this day, most online web apps, Rails and Ruby are tough to beat.


I use my own fake-webframework (created before rails came out).

Granted, it is way below feature parity with rails. But it also does not want to be feature equal.

I also use sinatra so I more belong into this world of simplicity.

And I am mega-productive related to the www there too, without needing RoR (but I value simplicity at all times; I hate the complexity of rails).

I just wonder why people think the www in ruby belongs to rails. I don't see it that way at all.
