Choosing the right programming language is a lot similar like picking your first new car. It’s a major confusion between choosing the hottest new car of the year or stick with the old and reliable one that will never go out of the style.

Wherever you end up, you will be having too many choices to take a firm decision. But, there’s more pressure than ever for software programmers to decide which framework to learn. So, before you take any firm decision like JavaScript over the rails, you should definitely spend a few minutes here to read this blog!

In this post, I’ll explain to you in-detail can JavaScript frameworks replace Rails?

“Ruby on Rails is astounding. Use it like watching a kung-fu movie, where a dozen bad-ass frameworks prepare to beat up the little newcomer only to be handed their asses in a variety of imaginative ways.”
Nathan Torkington, O’Reilly Program Chair for OSCON (emphasis mine)

Ruby is a full-stack web-application framework that includes everything, which is required to create database-backed web applications according to the MVC. Incredibly, it has made the web development so easy and fast, exclusively when the pipeline came along. On the other hand, the JavaScript world has evolved significantly and it’s able to take care of itself as of now. And the answer of the above question is it will not.

The diversity and the freedom of implementation choices behind the HTTP is the beauty of working with and for the web. It is not an iOS and Android war or another technological battlefield that is indoctrinated as a zero-sum platform war.

This “replace” question is generated because of the latest hype. And the current response can be a favorable yes and that is great. Being a Rails developer, I sincerely appreciate that. We are in a world of technology trends transforming society, we hype about things what is new and Rails does not fit in this new category. Rails were launched back in 2004 – it’s a 13-year-old. It would have been really sad if Rails would have been the focus of hype. Fortunately, it is not.

There are many top-notch brands, which have created their websites using Ruby on Rails. Groupon, Airbnb and Shopify are the name built with ROR and we all are familiar with these brands. Lots of startups consider these names as a reference and dream to repeat their commercial success. So, choosing Ruby on Rails over other frameworks always seemed to be a good idea. This is what makes us realize, how far the community has come.

Ruby on Rails development is suitable for eCommerce marketplaces along with site-building platforms. Hulu, GitHub, Heroku, CrunchBase, SoundCloud, Diaspora, Dribble and hundreds of other websites are built using Ruby on Rails technology stack. Ruby on Rails is a truly universal platform.

For the Ruby on Rails community, it is such a great honor to still be standing after a decade. Yes, not just standing, but continuously improving and progressing. The technology is shaping our world and making it richer for us.
