Technologies used

The technology stack used in this book consists of mainly Ruby-only libraries and tools:

  • Sinatra—a Ruby domain-specific language (DSL) with a minimalist approach in building web applications
  • DataMapper—a Ruby object-relational mapping library
  • Haml—a Ruby-friendly markup language that allows us to manipulate XHTML of any web document programmatically
