rails

so...has anyone here tried ruby on rails? i'm sort of wondering if i should try it for my work site. i played around with it a bit after watching the blog application movie (15 minutes, 50mb, needs quicktime 7) because, frankly, i was blown away by the development speed and ease.

it has nothing to do with python. where did you get that idea? it's a web application framework that uses the ruby language.

try http://webpy.org/.

lambda,
ROR is pretty cool, but I don't see myself using it in any serious project. I am more comfortable with python, and as such prefer tools like django and turbogears. Rails has a little too much magic for my taste. Maybe DSLs are an acquired taste.

That said, I'd say try out ROR and Turbogears. Despite being a complete Ruby n00b, I find myself way more productive in these frameworks than in Java and ASP.NET. I prefer Turbogears because it's built on very solid libraries (SQLObject, cherrypy, mochikit) that I've got great experience with in the past.

kadnan, Rails is a ruby based web framework that contains several pieces of functionality, one of which happens to be AJAX.

As far as web programming in python is concerned, you can either go the piecemeal route (choose components for templating, MVC control dispatch, ORM, etc. separately) or go wholehog with a framework like TurboGears or Django.

Python apps can be deployed as CGI, but most deployments get done with something more scalable like mod_python or FastCGI. As such, you will most likely need a host that gives you shell access, as well as having Apache support for the requisite modules.
