Here's What We Do Best
With gather expertise and experience from interdisciplinary specialists we affirm that teams using the Ruby on Rails, a full-stack development framework, and a plethora of Ruby’s security and performance gems, can build secure stable products to market quickly with a lower total cost of ownership than other tools. Experience tells us that by using Ruby on Rails, we can rapidly get your products to market, while maintaining a high standard of code quality. It could not get more exciting as Rails comes with batteries included and with an active and enthusiastic global community there has been no reason for us to even think otherwise.
Rails was the first non-enterprise, opinionated, complete Web framework. It had built-in pluralization of nouns! Database migrations! Distinct runtime environments! A huge bag of helper methods that abstracts common tasks and makes code read beautifully. Mere minutes to spin up a server and deploy to Heroku, for free!
We still use Rails because it solves its specific problem the best, thanks to the years of development over other systems. Django is the closest competitor, but it has historically lacked the people-power that the Rails ecosystem had. For secure, stable, boring, simple CRUD: Rails. For most of the Web: Rails.
Once we got into Rails it became clear that there was a great open source community around Ruby and Rails which made doing new or even scary things a lot simpler. There were great learning resources and. It was just a good community to fall into.
Go or Elixir/Phoenix make more sense for The Non-Web Internet: chat, email, SSH, Redis sockets, command-line API tools, custom network servers, anything synchronous. Anything that scales vertically, or has a significant amount of traffic (>10kRPM), should probably not be done in Rails.
For our Group of companies, Spritle means much more than a great technology company. We will always get their point of view before pursuing a new technology or a new project!
Vantage Solutions has been working with Spritle now for over three years and what a run it has been. I wish to thank you for all your talent, creativity and energy. You are also a very passionate and flexible team – which I admire. In fact, I feel that we work so well together that we are essentially one team. In past years, I have worked with many IT teams, but none like Spritle. To me, the most important attribute about Spritle is that you are not defensive or insular. Your team is very willing to provide new ideas and views. And, you are not afraid to make mistakes, make those known and move on. This last piece is what I believe makes Spritle stand alone. I am grateful to be a partner with Spritle.
