    Rapid Web Development w/ Go

    Buffalo (https://gobuffalo.io) was the closest when I was doing golang. Not as stable or as capable as rails imho.

  • sorbet-typed

    A central repository for sharing type definitions for Ruby gems

    The tooling around "installing" types for third party dependencies (the equivalent of doing "npm install @types/something" is non existent. I had to manually copy over files from https://github.com/sorbet/sorbet-typed, which is so far behind pythons and typescript, where you can just "pip install"/"npm install" the types. Not only that, most third party dependencies don't provide types, so the "coverage" is super incomplete. I had to try and create some third party types myself, bit even that was a challenge because it's so hard to be sure of the entirety of what's going on in a ruby codebase because the language is dynamic.
