Two things I like that give out of the box (via and I want everywhere:

- Active Record, i.e., automatic database↔application object mapping, & migrations

- Action Cable, i.e., websocket pub/sub so all your tabs/devices know when one of them changed something

Rolling either yourself is a big risk. Sequelize and Diesel (in Node and Rust) seem like great Active Records. Now looking for Action Cables in those languages.

Picking a language with these to learn.


I mean of course and have all of these…

I'm also a little bit curious about Turbolinks and Stimulus.js via Basecamp and Rails.

I can't be having with it.
