Rails is closely related to Ruby, but the difference between them is significant: Ruby is a programming language, and Rails is a framework created for Ruby.
One of the fastest-growing programming languages, Ruby is characterized not only by multithreading and open - source code, but also by the ability to create cross-platform apps, typification, garbage collection, and ease of writing and reading syntax. Its use in IT technologies is inextricably linked to the framework that can significantly simplify the process of creating a modern web application, called Rails. Shopify, GitHub, Airbnb, SoundCloud, Zendesk, Twitter, and Cookpad were created using Ruby on Rails (abbreviated as RoR). The distinctive feature of this framework is that you can extend it by contributing your own code, therefore adjusting it to the project’s requirements.
Working with Ruby allows you to save time and reduce code volume without losing functionality. It provides a set of powerful tools in the form of dynamic typification, which significantly speeds up the programming process. The Ruby / Rails combination is optimal for the large project development process at the testing stage, as it contains a base of ready-made solutions for both integration tests and unit tests.
