RoR, Express, and Laravel are entirely different beasts. If you're doing it for fun, just go ahead and use whatever you think will give you the most of experience. If this will be a commercial product, bear this in mind:
If this will be an MVP or a really small commercial product that you have to launch now, I'd suggest you go for Laravel. If NPM already has some specific tool that you require but neither RoR or PHP have it, go for Express. For the long run and superior scalability, go for RoR.
The app that I'm building will be a blogging platform. It's currently at a nascent stage, made with Express but I was thinking of porting my existing backend to RoR because of the very aspects of RoR that you mentioned.
