Data-driven webapps built with Ruby, Java & Wicket


In order to dive into Ruby, I decided to convert Pixlshare from Java+Wicket to Ruby on Rails.

It’s an admittedly small project, but I was surprised how easy it was. I had it basically working in under a day, and polished enough for production use in under 2 days.

But the best part was the code size: a reduction of 6 to 1 going from Java -> Ruby.
