Rails... Nitro... Any others?
I've decided that learning Ruby, however, is something I must do. Ruby feels right, even if Rails doesn't.
I've started to look at Nitro, though two things strike me straight away: built-in AJAX, and ORM. "Built-in" is really starting to get on my nerves.
So, are there any other frameworks for Ruby which are lightweight and don't include ORM and/or AJAX?
I'm looking for something nice and clean, which just abstracts the page controller/model/views for me, which I can extend and use how I want, with no "great features" fudging things up.
Please, please don't go on about how great Rails is in this post. I'm looking for alternatives, not my_life_story_in_ror_v1_0.
