Jump Start Sinatra

Published January 2013

Sinatra is the natural choice for building fast and efficient Ruby applications without the weight of Rails.

Sinatra has become the natural choice for building fast and efficient Ruby applications without the weight of Rails. In fact, consider that the entire Sinatra codebase weighs in at less than 2,000 lines—around 1% the size of Rails! And, unlike Rails, you have the freedom to choose the tools you prefer. Just like Sinatra itself, Jump Start Sinatra packs a punch. You’ll be taken on a tour of the ‘classy approach to web development’, building up to a fully modular, database-driven website. Find out why Apple, the BBC, and GitHub are using it today!

Oh yeah, and the whole SitePoint library! Learn More.
