RubyConf 2008: Ramaze: The underrated Web Framework

Ramaze ( is a simple, light and modular open-source web application framework written in Ruby. Even though Ramaze hasn't been in the spotlight as much as Merb and Sinatra, it has a lot to offer:

  • Like Merb, it lets you select from a variety of ORMs and templating engines
  • Ramaze is developed in a BDD fashion with specs written in Bacon.
  • The documentation and examples from the site are very good and the code is easy to dig into.
  • The community is very friendly and helpful

I will give an introduction to Ramaze and show why you should consider it for your next project.
