  • crystal

    The Crystal Programming Language

  • Ruby is a super fun scripting language. I much prefer it to python when I need something with a little more "ooomph" than bash. It's just...nice...to write in. Ruby performance has come a long way in the last decade as well. There's libraries for pretty much everything.

    My modern programming toolkit is basically golang + ruby + bash and I am never left wanting.

    I do find Crystal (https://crystal-lang.org/) really interesting and am hoping it has its own "ruby on rails" moment that helps the language reach a tipping point in popularity. All the beauty of ruby with all of the speed of Go (and then some, it often compares favorably to languages like rust in benchmarks).

  • chalice

    Python Serverless Microframework for AWS

  • That looks similar to Chalice (also for Python)

  • Ruby on Rails

    Ruby on Rails

  • I think that you're conflating correlation with causation. I think it's more plausible to assume it was the early numbers that are skewed and non-representative.

    The fact that GitHub itself was is a killer app of the Ruby on Rails, and that the Rails project itself changed to being hosted on GitHub somewhat very early on it's history [1] had a disproportionate effect on the early community that gathered there.

    Now GitHub attracts a much more diverse portfolio of projects, so the numbers you see there are less statistically biased towards early Ruby on Rails adopters.

    [1] Commit history on the main branch of rails/rails via github goes as far as Apr 10, 2008 https://github.com/rails/rails/commit/c67e985994362290308073...

  • WorkOS

    The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.
