Ruby on Rails is the de-facto web framework of the Ruby community. From time to time ruby web frameworks are still being developed. LotusRB is one such framework. It works a lot like Ruby on Rails but it is a lot more lightweight and faster.
It is so easy to install
$ gem install lotusrb 17 gems installed
$ lotus new my_app
$ cd my_app && bundle Bundle complete! 6 Gemfile dependencies, 27 gems now installed. Use `bundle show [gemname]` to see where a bundled gem is installed.
$ bundle exec lotus server [2015-11-10 03:46:12] INFO WEBrick 1.3.1 [2015-11-10 03:46:12] INFO ruby 2.2.1 (2015-02-26) [x86_64-darwin14] [2015-11-10 03:46:12] INFO WEBrick::HTTPServer#start: pid=23802 port=2300
Like Ruby on Rails it also has its generators
bundle exec lotus db create
bundle exec lotus db drop
bundle exec lotus db migrate
bundle exec lotus routes
bundle exec lotus generate action
bundle exec lotus generate model
bundle exec lotus generate migration
bundle exec lotus generate mailer
Why don’t you try LotusRB for a spin!
