Some of you are familiar with the work I actually get paid for. For those of you who aren't: I make database-driven web pages.
My software is similar to Ruby on Rails in regards to this. Mine has a lot more automation than Ruby on Rails does, but theirs has more features - after all, it's far more mature. Mine also requires zero coding - everything is done in a GUI interface that's fully compatible with all tested browsers to date.
I've gotten a lot done, really. The suite is functional now, although not polished and missing a few capabilities.
But I'm beginning to think it might be easier just to switch to Ruby on Rails. I mean, it's a pretty slick little package. Once I learn it, I might be able to create a fully graphical interface variant.
But - DAMN! - I really hate giving up. I mean, my software works. It's pretty slick. Version six - the version I'm currently programming - is better than Rails for most development purposes. But it's still got a lot of devving left to do, and afterwards I'll want to make version seven, using more Java for drag-n-drop goodness...
I'm gonna try Rails. So ver 6 is temporarily on hold, until I've dissected Rails. Hopefully, Rails will kick patookis, and I can drop my own software and enhance Rails to the level I want.
Edit: If I can get it to freaking INSTALL. Oh, come on, this is pathetic!
Edit 2: I got it to install. Of course, I can't get the Windows version to work, and my Linux machine is pure command line, so we'll see how this works out...
