    It's a language that focuses on "developer happiness" so obviously it was never going to gain much traction
    It's objectively better than Python though. Just imagine if all the Python data science and AI libraries had been written for Ruby instead, and it had become the most popular programming language. Would've been nice

      doesn't matter if its "better" if its unpleasant to use.
      people like python because it's 0 hassle. IQfy has convinced itself that it's because python is understandable by idiots but i think IQfy severely overestimates how smart the average person is and how little most people can handle even tiny amounts of scripting.
      ruby was just... not nice to use and had a community hellbent on making everyone feel like dumbasses for daring to ask. it encapsulated and unintentionally highlighted everything that is fricking garbage about stack overflow.

        They were fricking piss babies and would do everything to discourage people from ever trying because they wanted an eilite cool kids club
        Turns out the club sucks when you're the only one there.

            yes, exactly like that. that's how the ruby community acts.

            So I guess ruby gives you job security? brb gonna learn ruby

            that was never being debated. you hog beaverpuke for brains?

      Dumb fricking hipster language that's agonizingly slow and is awful to debug. Filled with invisible magic bullshit than you either can't turn off or is ridiculous to reconfigure. Much more limited tools and resources than more mainstream languages.

      Ruby on Rails specializes in streamlining things so slapping together a demo webapp is quick as frick. Dynamic typing, lots of boiler plate code generation, you don't need to add all of the class attributes in the class file (they're in the schema instead), useful lifecycle hooks, etc.
      However, people wind up just using the demo webapp as the main thing, which isn't great because Ruby doesn't scale very well because of what I said above.

      You can cope all you want but Rails is not gonna be replaced anytime soon
      Also Rails World tickets sold out in 20 mins

      yeah lots of opportunities maintain rushed legacy code from early 2010s startups stuck with Ruby

    it’s only good for Homebrew and Ruby on Rails
    I never liked it and it doesn’t run on Windows as well as Python does
    The only good thing about it is that it lets you make DSLs without typing oodles of parentheses

    It doesn't have the same amount of libraries at Python does so Rails was the only thing holding it together. When Node started gaining ground it got abandoned quick.

    poor performance
    because it was once the hyped language, those wishing to stay on the hype train move to a different language
    everyone eventually moves away from their rails code
    libraries eventually fall into disrepair
    a surprising number of security advisories

    seems the workplace is migrating away from using rails to develop internal apps to just fire up appsmith.

    It wasn't an improvement over Perl or Python. Better in some ways, worse in others.

    Dude, I feel that feel.

    Ruby is so nice to program in. I would MUCH rather have Ruby over Python. Maybe it needs to focus on speed and concurrency for the next version. Something like that might save it versus Python's GIL cancer.

    I do a lot of database stuff at work. It would be nice to able to leverage the comfiness of Ruby in many contexts. Ruby replacing BASH would be great. Its probably a bit faster than BASH and its far more powerful. Honestly idk why so few people use Ruby. Its like a prettier Perl or like Python without the autism. Its just comfy but despite its comfiness I have no reason to really use it.

    Languages I'm actively using:
    Bash (de facto Linux glue)
    Python (don't like it but can't avoid it)
    Common Lisp (love it)
    Scala (really hoping Scala Native improves so it can be independent of the JVM)

    The languages on my radar:
    Pony (type-safe lock-free concurrency backed by a mathematical proof)
    Zig, Hare (both seem better for systems than C and C++)

    The languages I don't really like but can't avoid:
    Javascript (frick this autism, we need something better than 'use strict')
    C/C++

    A lot of you guys will hate me about not liking le C/Cpeepee. I don't care. C was created when computers were very different and it shows. C++ is powerful and well supported but its a syntax nightmare with its own issues. Zig and Hare are taking things in the right direction. They remain simple while adding useful features. Zig is brilliant in that it supports C out of the box. Its exactly what we need to move away from legacy code.
