Loads of successful startups can tell you why they prefer using Ruby on Rails to build their websites. In the programming world, Ruby on Rails is strongly associated with startups. There is a reason. Actually, there are several reasons. Here are a few:

Efficiency

Ruby on Rails contains many ready-made plugins and modules which allow developers not to waste time. It’s proven that Ruby teams build applications much faster than teams using other programming languages and frameworks. It makes web development less stressful as it allows developers to write less code.

Bang For The Buck

Ruby on Rails is an open source framework distributed under the MIT license meaning you don’t have to spend loads of money on the framework itself. Gems allow the addition of features without developing them from nothing. You can find gems for almost any purpose and download them for little to no cost.

Quality

Tools implemented within RoR offer comprehensive testing such as expectation syntax, test benchmarking, and mocking. Ruby on Rails also encourages test driven development (TDD) and behavior-driven development (BDD) approaches. Clients want quality and RoR can provide that.

Security

RoR is secure. Security features are already built in and Ruby on Rails is secure by default. However, relying on in-built features is not advisable and Goji Labs knows this. We work with clients to build iron-clad applications. Furthermore, current RoR versions have several built-in mechanisms to stop hackers and the Rails community actively works to identify and patch new vulnerabilities as they come along.
