Ruby client

« Back to Glossary Index

What is a Ruby client?

A Ruby client refers to applications that use the Ruby dynamically typed programming language that is used with modern APIs and single page apps. It is considered less popular than Python or Java for these purposes.

Ruby is easy to use and has an open source community, which makes it cost effective for many. Ruby is considered very flexible, so it’s in high demand for web development, scripting, data processing, DevOps and static site generation. It’s also a highly portable and cross-platform language. For example, code that is written on one operating system will run on others such as Linus, Max OSX and Windows.
