Ruby, Ruby on Rails and Drupal, what is the difference?

A lot of people just don't get it. So let us straighten out some confusing matters. So to avoid more FUD.

Don't confuse Ruby with Drupal. Don't think that Ruby on Rails and Drupal can be compared, they cannot. On top of that, they are complementary.

There is Ruby. Ruby is just another programming-language, like Perl, PHP, C or Java. Ruby is one of the newest languages (~14 years old), which -in practice- means it has learned a lot from bad parts of older languages.

There is Ruby on Rails (RoR). This is a system (program) written in the language Ruby. Just like Drupal is written in PHP. But RoR is a framework, not a CMS; With RoR you will have to write your own CMS all by yourself. Drupal already IS a CMS. Ruby on Rails's power (and hype) lies in the fact that writing that complete CMS takes you only a few days, or even just hours. Drupal's power lies in the fact that you don't have to write anything at all.

DC PHP Conference, October 19th-20th

Speakers include:

  • Rasmus Lerdorf
    Rasmus Lerdorf is known for having gotten the PHP project off the
    ground in 1995, the mod_info Apache module and he can be blamed for the
    ANSI92 SQL-defying LIMIT clause in mSQL 1.x which has now, at least
    conceptually, crept into both MySQL and PostgreSQL. Prior to joining
    Yahoo! as an infrastructure engineer in 2002, he was at a string of
    companies including Linuxcare, IBM, and Bell Canada working on Internet

PHP-based OpenID Server code

Here are links to various server PHP code with some notes:

Videntity -


PHP OpenID is intended to run on any version of PHP >= 4.1.0, although I have only tested it with PHP5 and PHP4.4 on gentoo. If you encounter problems running with other versions, please let me know. Great care has been taken to use PHP extensions when available and to provide fallback routines in case the extension is not present. These fallback routines are often slower and may not be as secure or "rock-solid". For production use of the library, I recommend installation of these extensions: gmp, mhash, curl, and tidy2. PHP OpenID does not use or require PEAR.
