Rails, Wow

I’ve been flirting with it for a while (have had the book since it came out and installed Rails all over the place, just never had time to get into it), but last night I broke down and built my first web application with Ruby on Rails and all I have to say is wow. That was way easier than it should have been. Granted, it was painfully simple, but still, it was about an hour total between setting up the domain and database on Dreamhost to getting it tweaked and looking like I wanted (oh, and working). It was another 5 minutes with the book this morning to get the export feature working like I wanted (well, they wanted).
Next time I need to build something outside of work (or hell, maybe inside of work), it’ll most likely be in Rails.
