Ruby on Rails (Ruby) and Django (Python) both the frameworks are popular and used by many developers all over the world. As both of these frameworks are loved by the developers, it is not easy to choose what you need for your project.
In web developing sector, both of these frameworks are gaining popularity. Be it Python’s Django development or Ruby on rails development India or any other country both are growing on full glory. Both of the languages offer the developers that make their work easier and goals easier to attain.
At Ethane Technologies we are a Ruby as well as Python web development company that uses the languages as per convenience to turn your dream website into a reality.
Here in this post, we will try to compare both these languages to see which has a better potential to be at a better place in the coming year.
While the language used by Django is Python, Ruby by Ruby on rails. And as Python is well known for its readability and simplicity of the codes it is very convenient for the beginners. Also, due to its simplicity, it is easier to learn for the students.
Whereas Rudy though is a little more complicated than that of Python, still it is enjoyable to code using this language.
Though both of the languages are open-source language with almost similar functions, their differences are still prominent.
Both the Django and Ruby on Rails have adopted the Model-View-Controller or MVC model. But Django has a slight difference here, as for Django this is called Model-View-Template or MVT.
For Django, MVT’s Model stands for the database which describes data structure, View resemblance Regular Expression based URL dispatcher that controls what will be seen by the viewers and Templates represents a web templating system that amalgamates with DTL or Django Template Language.
Whereas, for Ruby on Rails Model represents data of database such as, pictures, posts, and comments that are handled by ActiveRecord. View controls the data in the HTML template and sends it to the controller later that is later handled by ActiveView. With Controller, both Model and View are connected to handle requests as well as handles responses to be sent to the web browser.
Speed and Performance
When the speed of both Django and Rail is compared, studies say that Rail is 0.7% faster than Django.
Ruby is equipped with amazing libraries and plugins that help to boost its speed as well as performance. While the Django REST framework can deliver convenient authentication modules, JSON serializers/deserializers.
But both languages offer quality work providing efficient tools to optimize code.
Ruby on rails can efficiently let the developers reuse codes to minimize dependency. It also prioritizes convention more than the configuration that allows the developers to perform their tasks without extra effort.
Whereas, Django focuses on a conventional approach that sticks to a proven method to solve the troubles.
When you talk about the installation process of both these frameworks, the differences get most prominent than it can be ever. Django’s installation process tends to be very easy and hence, it can be installed within a minute completely.
When it arrived in front of you, it gets a little harder. While you want to install RoR, it requires understanding the Gems and Bundle and then these two need to install first. Once you done all the above things, then we can install the upgraded versions of Ruby on Rails.
When it comes to security, Django is no doubt extremely good at it being inherited from Python. Being used by NASA itself proves how strong the security is provided by Django. Whereas Django is supported by Middlewares, Ror is backed with active records.
Django and RoR both the frameworks provide security against cross-site scripting or XSS, SQL injection.
Though Django has scalability thanks to Python, still it lags when compared to you. RoR has earned it thanks to the flexibility and freedom that it offers to the developers. Though both of them designed considering scalability still Rudy will score better on this matter than that of Python.
Ruby uses a highly flexible syntax. As great as it may seem, this can also be very troublesome. Especially when the project is to be handed over to other developers as one feature can be achieved in different ways creating confusion for the developers.
Whereas, with Python, it has only one prominent way to achieve a particular thing making it easier for developers to perform changes.
Though both the frameworks provide templating still it is easier to perform with Django. Here, Django works on a simple templating language that allows developers to create a template with minimal programming and HTML skills.
Whereas, with Ruby, templating seems more complex than that of Django.
