Comment on "Lightweight Ruby Frameworks"
by Ryan Raaum — Dec 10
I would just use rails from the start if you think there's any chance you will end up there. Rails is simple and lightweight. Simple CRUD is the sweet spot for rails development.

I've done some camping (merb is very new so I've done nothing more than read the release notes). And camping is awesome - but not necessarily easier than rails. Smaller for sure, but not easier. Also definitely much less well documented. _why wasn't primarily shooting for easy when he created camping - he was trying to make the smallest possible framework using all of the crazy and obscure ruby tricks at his disposal.
