RIFE vs Rails side by side

Like many other java developers, I am currently using Spring and
Hibernate, so I can’t attest to the quality of RIFE. But I thought this
was interesting: This is a side-by-side
comparison
of the RIFE source vs. the Rails source for the
same feature (Ta-da list
vs Bla bla list).
Just another thing to add to the ever-growing list of things to check
out.

Note that I don’t have an opinion on this because I don’t know both
toolsets (and like many others I don’t sound very smart when comparing
something I know vs something I don’t know). :-)

  1. This is hardly a side-by-side comparison, it’s a picture of the longest RIFE snippet and a short Rails snippet. The list act of Rails btw makes a lot of this very short. So for the target application (which is an reorderable list) the code really capitalizes on that.

    Since then a lot happened, and I’d like to point you to what DHH says himself after having looked closer at RIFE instead of just comparing number of code lines:
