re: The Rails Ecosystem is Healthier than Ever VIEW POST


I've been doing Rails for a while, but until Rails 5 it felt like a burden. I always preferred sinatra/roda over Rails. Tried playing around with other frameworks...

But somehow after working more with Rails 5. It became my default option for a framework. Eco-system became mature enough to have good choice in gems, that satisfy my picky standards. I hardly have 'I'll write a simpler version of this gem in couple of days' moments and I feel like I have more time to do meaningful work.


Every major Rails release felt like a significant improvement (though the migration from 2 to 3 was no fun), but with 5 everything really started to feel a bit more "grown up" :) There are still some parts I don't particularly enjoy, but they are easy enough to ignore.
