Streamline development of dynamic, database-backed Web applications

3rdRail combines the straightforward yet powerful syntax of the Ruby language and the robust Rails framework with advanced productivity tools, 3rdRail streamlines the creation of database-backed web applications while retaining the full dynamic nature of Ruby programming. 3rdRail understands how a Ruby on Rails application works and the context of what the developer is doing.

3rdRail helps you write programs with accuracy and fewer keystrokes because you no longer need to remember fine points such as object types, methods and method signatures. 3rdRail predicts likely expectations based on conventions and semantics and is able to understand the context of what you are doing. Special productivity wizards combine numerous related steps into single operations, and embedded Web development tools - including Mozilla browser, JavaScript debugging, Document Object Model inspection and request monitoring - help developers easily edit and manage all website artifacts.
