Ruby on Rails
[513 users on Ohloh]
Ruby on Rails is a full-stack MVC framework for database-backed web applications that's optimized for programmer happiness and sustainable productivity. It lets you write beautiful code by favoring convention over configuration.

From the Ajax in the view, to the request and response in the controller, to the domain model wrapping the database, Rails gives you a pure-Ruby development environment. To go live, all you need to add is a database and a web server.

Haml is a markup language that’s used to cleanly and simply describe the XHTML of any web document without the use of inline code. Haml functions as a replacement for inline page templating systems such as PHP, ASP, and ERB, the templating language used in most Ruby on Rails applications. However, Haml avoids the need for explicitly coding XHTML into the template, because it itself is a description of the XHTML, with some code to generate dynamic content.

Passenger (mod_rails for Apache)
[43 users on Ohloh]
Phusion Passenger — a.k.a. mod_rails — makes deployment of applications built on the revolutionary Ruby on Rails web framework a breeze. It follows the usual Ruby on Rails conventions, such as “Don’t-Repeat-Yourself”.

Note that the Ohloh source analysis is incorrect. The statistics for C++ and comment count are wrong because the Boost library is included. It is also not true that there's a single developer, because Passenger is commercially supported by Phusion.

REST is a fine pattern for designing controllers, but it can be pretty repetitive. Who wants to write out the same actions and copy the same model lookup logic all over their application?

make_resourceful handles all that for you. It sets up all your RESTful actions and responses with next to no code. Everything has full, sensible default functionality.

Of course, no controller only uses the defaults. So make_resourceful can be massively customized, while still keeping your controlle...
