RadRails puts RoR on Web2.0 development Autobahn

It took me less than 50% time to get a small database RWD (Read-Write-Delete) application in RoR (Ruby On Rails) as compared to traditional Java application on Eclipse. How I did that, using RadRails
What is RadRails, Its a bomb!, its amazing, seriously I was never this excited, when Eclipse happened to Java/J2EE world. Why because it took me more time get Eclipse up and running with my java project and hook tomcat to it , yadda yadda!. But I could count it on on my fingers how long it took me get one simple rails app up and running with built in WEBrick server. It was just less than 5 mins, I had simple customer application with DB read/write/delete running on my browser.
RadRails is written on Eclipse framework, but extremely sexy, in terms producing components. Like rails/ruby/database/subversion support etc.

Some of the cool features
  • mvc key bindings : To jump one context of development to another, moving between view (.rhtml ) to app controller faster.
  • Generate tabs: All rails generate command on your fingertips
  • Console/Tail : Very helpful in AJAX development where you can see data going back and forth between your client and server.

Oh yeah!, did I say how It was this quick , have a look at the screencast , you got to love this stuff!!..

There is a famous say "You need a reason to convince yourself, why you should do different deed", I guess RadRails is my reason to love Ruby/RoR.

So finally I would say "Got RoR!"
