Ruby on Rails, often referred to as Rails, is a framework for developing web applications. It's written in the Ruby programming language. Rails adopts the model-view-controller (MVC) architecture, which organizes code in a way that separates data management, user interface, and control logic. This structure simplifies the creation and maintenance of databases, web services, and web pages.

Rails promotes efficient coding practices and design patterns. Some of the key principles include:

  • Convention over Configuration (CoC): Rails favors convention (default settings and structures) over extensive configurations, making development quicker and easier by reducing the number of decisions developers have to make.
  • Don't Repeat Yourself (DRY): This principle encourages reusing code rather than duplicating it, which simplifies changes and maintenance.
  • Active Record Pattern: Rails uses this pattern to simplify database access. It allows objects to be easily saved, retrieved, and manipulated in the database without writing complex SQL queries.
