What are some alternatives to puma and webrick?
rake
Rake is a Make-like program implemented in Ruby. Tasks and dependencies are specified in standard Ruby syntax. Rake has the following features: * Rakefiles (rake's version of Makefiles) are completely defined in standard Ruby syntax. No XML files to edit. No quirky Makefile syntax to worry about (is that a tab or a space?) * Users can specify tasks with prerequisites. * Rake supports rule patterns to synthesize implicit tasks. * Flexible FileLists that act like arrays but know about manipulating file names and paths. * Supports parallel execution of tasks.
pry
An IRB alternative and runtime developer console.
rails
Ruby on Rails is a full-stack web framework optimized for programmer happiness and sustainable productivity. It encourages beautiful code by favoring convention over configuration.
rspec
BDD for Ruby.
pg
Pg is the Ruby interface to the {PostgreSQL RDBMS}[http://www.postgresql.org/]. It works with {PostgreSQL 9.2 and later}[http://www.postgresql.org/support/versioning/]. A small example usage: #!/usr/bin/env ruby require 'pg' # Output a table of current connections to the DB conn = PG.connect( dbname: 'sales' ) conn.exec( "SELECT * FROM pg_stat_activity" ) do |result| puts " PID | User | Query" result.each do |row| puts " %7d | %-16s | %s " % row.values_at('procpid', 'usename', 'current_query') end end.
