Readers will be aware of my explorations of Ruby on Rails last fall, a project I eventually abandoned. This article nicely illustrates in a manner much better than I could the reasons why. Starting with: "Rails doesn't play well. With anyone. Not even itself." Also, "Rails has no manual. Let me repeat that: Rails has no manual. If you haven't used Rails, you may not believe me. Well, go visit the Rails documentation page. Hmmm ... We have APIs, Tutorials, HowTos, Snippets, but no manuals. There's a section called "manuals" but that's documentation for side projects." There's a lot more, all of which I encountered.
