The verdict on ruby on rails

Posted By on April 10, 2005

Well, it looks completely wonderful. However, you basically have to be able control the webserver to a degree that most hosting companies aren't comfortable with. Basically, it seems to want to be either VHosted, or Aliased to where you want it. I don't have that luxury – it has to be in a subdirectory of my home directory.

Also, my hosting provider doesn't have the necessary libraries for rails anyway.

So, while Ruby might be great for real business use, and therefore I might pick it up later to hack around with, it doesn't help me with my need to redo my website. See, I have this TODO list. Once everything on the list is done, then I'll invent more projects. However, right now, the following is in the list:

  • web site
  • Backup howto
  • UPS monitoring
  • dar -t to test archives

Quite a short list, but still needs doing…
