Ruby for the Web: The Arrow Web Application Framework
Michael Granger, The FaerieMUD Consortium

Track: Ruby
Date: Thursday, July 29
Time: 1:45pm - 2:30pm
Location: Meadowlark


Developing web applications in Ruby is already pretty easy, but there are a few tools available to make it even easier. One such tool is Arrow, a web application framework that uses Apache and mod_ruby. It provides the usual menu of conveniences for web programmers like input validation and untainting, templating, and sessions, as well as a few not-so-common ones like application chaining, execution monitors, and introspection services. This session provides an overview of the framework, an introductory tutorial, and several live demonstration applications.
