Ruby on Rails
Ruby on Rails, or just Rails for short, is a backend framework based on the Ruby programming language, used for development of web applications. First released in 2005, it has gained a great reputation among Ruby developers for its excellent, developer-friendly design.
Why have we decided to use Rails in Efigence?
Rails is known to save a lot of development time. Having to assign less manhours to a project allows us to reduce spending and transfer this saving to our clients, reducing project cost.
The framework is designed to reduce the repetition of tasks and provide ready to use modules for common problems. This allows for development of an application in a short time.
Using community-developed building blocks and formulas, means that common Rails solutions are widely tested and shielded from security flaws.
Ruby on Rails projects are developer friendly
Rails was first developed 15 years ago, specifically to make the development process more programmer friendly. This efficient design was adopted by Efigence, as we set unto the journey of becoming a leading RoR development company in Poland. Rails achieves efficiently by adopting a series of paradigms. First of them is the Model-View-Controller architecture, which separates the parts of the program into clear, task-oriented sections. This reduces the complexity of the project and allows for a better division of developmental tasks, ensuring more efficient project management.
Another paradigm is the Convention over Configuration, also known as the Rails Way. Rails prepares various solutions in the most commonly used way, allowing the developer to focus on the tasks at hands, without being distracted by configurations that are usually set to the same values. You can think of it like the auto-focus in your camera.
The last one is the DRY or Don’t Repeat Yourself principle. It reduces code repetition, making it easier to maintain and, most importantly, reduces the number of bugs in the program. Additionally, DRY helps reduce the programmer’s workload and speeds up the development process. This allows us to deliver you the product swiftly and at a cost lower than using other frameworks.
Ruby on Rails is secure
Applications developed using Ruby on Rails are largely built out of building blocks, known as Gems. These Gems are widely used by the scores of developers around the world, who constantly test them for security flaws, fix them and share the solutions with the wider community. This helps ensure that the applications written using Rails do not have backdoors for hackers to exploit, making them very secure.
