A lot of people are using ruby on rails as a web development framework, its a pure ruby templating/object-relational-mapping/application framework and awfully cool - take a look at the webcast over at: http://media.rubyonrails.org/video/r...with_sound.mov . Of course there's no reason why you can't use "just" ruby to do things too - much as you might use perl, php or python.

I'm using Rails to develop my organisations' intranet. Other sites that are using Rails include http://43things.com, http://www.basecamphq.com/, and http://www.odeo.com/ (more at http://www.rubyonrails.org/applications ).

Ruby is a nice language because of its clean, consistent, object orientated syntax; weak typing; dynamic classes and plain straightforwardness...

43things is entirely built using Rails. Rails lets you set up templates in which you can embed ruby code, but its considered rather a bad idea in as much as you're combining business logic and presentation if you do that. You normally do all the clever stuff in a controller and the template just displays your data. Take a look at the webcast to get a clearer idea of what I mean. http://media.rubyonrails.org/video/r...with_sound.mov
