The open source framework for web application of Ruby programming language is called Ruby on Rails. For rapid web development processes, this technology is the best option for the developers.
The application platform uses the Model-View-Controller architecture pattern for organizing the development process done using Ruby on Rails. Common development tasks are made simpler by using the tools provided. The points discussed below, when utilized properly, help the Ruby on Rails programmers to develop their projects with high efficiency.
The plug-ins structure provided by Rails helps the developers to install the required plug-ins instantaneously and integrate this downloaded plug-ins with the applications they are trying to develop. The Ruby on Rails programmer who founded the technology stated that he had used around five to six plug-ins when initially developed Ruby on Rails. But choosing the right plug-in for the requirement of the Ruby on Rail developer is highly important.
To make the project being developed an efficient one the developers have to make sure that the project runs smoothly and seamlessly. The ‘Automated Testing’ process available in the Ruby on Rails technology helps in being updated on the projects that are being developed and can be checked for efficiency each time an update is being made. This automated testing helps in providing confident results from the project accurately.
In some cases when the developer has the code already obtained without knowing the results that will be yielded by the code. The tool called Console provided by Rails helps in obtaining an interactive session using the code already present.
These are some of the plug-in and tool aspects of Ruby on Rails which are considered to be highly efficient for the developers to utilize. The large and active communities of Ruby on Rails help the programmers to get the updates about the constantly changing aspects of the technology.
