3 projects where you should avoid using Ruby on Rails for web development


There are multiple benefits of Ruby on Rails web development. However, it is not a solution to all your web development needs. Here are the three projects in which you should avoid Ruby on Rails agile web development - 


  1. Better frameworks available
    When you know that your project needs a better and scalable framework like Django, you should avoid using Ruby on Rails web application development at all costs. While Ruby web apps are scalable, Django and Python are much more effective for apps that need to handle massive traffic.

    Similarly, If you want to work with Machine Learning and statistics, then Ruby web programming should not be your first choice. While there are excellent libraries like JRuby, they are not as efficient as the libraries in Django.

  2. Massive codebase
    When you know that your project requires a massive codebase with lots of programmers working on it, then Ruby on Rails for web application is definitely the wrong choice. It would make the application structure unstable as it is designed for small and medium-sized applications.

    You can have several exceptions for Ruby on Rails scaling, but it is done with the help of different tools. It is also not a smart move to build a Ruby on Rails web app with a team of 100 Ruby web programmers.

  3. Technical execution
    If your web application project focuses more on technical execution than Ruby on Rails agile web development should be avoided as a possibility. Rails is a fail-fast framework that emphasizes rapid web development.

    When your product has a lot of technical requirements, Ruby web programming can really throw-off your web development project. Even when you don’t want to use RubyGems, the framework assumes that you want to and might add to a lot of extra dependencies.


Ruby on Rails web development is fantastic everywhere else


Apart from the three projects mentioned-above, Ruby on Rails for web development is an amazing choice for all kinds of web application projects.  


If you are a startup that believes in building and breaking quickly, then Ruby on Rails agile web development should be your first choice. And when it comes to scaling, the framework can support you by handling thousands of user requests. 


Ruby on Rails web applications are going to gain popularity as more businesses look for rapid product development. At BoTree Technologies, we have a team of Ruby on Rails developers that work towards increasing your operational efficiency through world-class Ruby on Rails applications.
