Rails in Simple Terms
Ruby on Rails (often simply called Rails) is a server-side web application framework written in Ruby. Since its emergence in the 2000s, Rails has influenced web application development through innovations in database table creation, content and code migration, and scaffolds of views that enable quick application development.
Ruby on Rails continues to influence other major web frameworks today, with many frameworks in other languages borrowing its ideas, including: Django (in Python), Catalyst (in Perl), Laravel and CakePHP (in PHP), Phoenix (in Elixir), Play (in Scala), and Sails.js (in Node.js).
