    Jeremy also maintains an awesome web framework called Roda. It's lightweight, fast, and easy to use when you don't need the heft of Rails.
  • Ask HN: Who's using Ruby web development without Ruby on Rails (RoR)?

    I've been on the Roda [0] and Sequel [1] framework for over 10 years now across various projects. Even after all these years, starting a project in this stack feels like a breath of fresh air even compared to the newer language/frameworks that jabe come out since.

    Jeremy Evans is the creator and maintainer of both of these Ruby gems and is super helpful in resolving ask kinda of issues.

  • rodauth-omniauth released: login & registration with multiple external providers

    My memory is failing me on the specifics, but I posted this issue on roda, which then led to this other issue in omniauth, plus 2 MRs on omniauth and rack-protection for doc updates.
  • Is rails the right choice for a junior dev?

    You could pick up a framework like Phoenix, or Remix (the newest kid on the block) and I'm sure you'd get plenty far with either - and if you want ruby, try Roda. You might not have ready made tools with the newer frameworks, so watch out for that. But they have the advantage of doing thing slightly differently.
  • What It Took to Build a Rails Integration for Rodauth
    11 projects | dev.to | 12 Oct 2022
    Even though Rodauth is built on top of Roda and Sequel, it can work as a Rack middleware in any Ruby web framework. In the beginning, there was a demo app showing how Rodauth can be used in Rails, which leveraged the (now discontinued) roda-rails gem. However, the integration felt fairly raw, and definitely lacked the ergonomics Rails developers are used to.
  • Sinatra vs. Roda, what's your take?
    2 projects | /r/ruby | 29 Aug 2022
    I'm a big fan of Sinatra, but recently I came across Roda which is by Jeremy Evan's whose wonderful ORM gem Sequel I've used in several projects. Looking at the documentation, Roda seems quite nice and performance gain is always appreciated.

    For anything but a large app, Roda is well worth considering. It's not the easiest for beginners, due to its philosophy of being bare-bones by default but highly extendable. But it's gradually becoming integrated into Bridgetown, whose batteries-included approach is making Roda much more accessible.

What are some alternatives?

Hanami - The web, with simplicity.

Ruby on Rails - Ruby on Rails
