The Awesome of Sinatra

The Awesome of Sinatra Posted on Jun 20th, 2012

Why awesome? Having used the Ruby language for around a month now, I decided to dive right into learning Rails. While I feel progress has been great so far, I wish I had known about Sinatra sooner. a nice introduction to Sinatra can be seen here What really appeals to me is the ability to quickly test out ideas, in an environment prettier than irb (no offence irb!). This has provided a more visual way for me to experiment with pure ruby code.


Having recently used Twitter Bootstrap on a small personal project, I decided to see if I could merge the two frameworks. I eventually came up with sin-strap. It's a pretty simple boilerplate that contains both frameworks, ideal for rapidly prototyping ideas or just messing around. Feel free to fork, clone, pull the repo. Comments always welcome!
