Camping, a Ruby Microframework
Fast To Learn
Learning Camping only requires basic Ruby skills.
require 'camping' Camping.goes :Blog module Blog end
Camping Is Simple Yet Powerful
Camping is simpler than Rails, but yet still follows the MVC pattern unlike Sinatra and Padrino.
require 'camping' Camping.goes :Blog module Blog module Models end module Controllers end module Views end end
Camping Is Lightning Fast
Camping is built on Rack and is very compact making web apps fast to load/run and memory efficient.
The whole web microframework source code consistently stays at less than 4kB. You can probably view the complete source code on a single page.
Camping Model Persistence Is Up To You
Although Camping has an affinity for ActiveRecord, you can use your favorite ORM with it (e.g. MongoMapper to acces MongoDB)
If you choose ActiveRecord, Camping will manage a default Sqlite database and let you define schema migrations using classes.
class BlogInitialSchemaCreation < V 1.0 def self.up create_table :blog_posts, #... end def self.down drop_table :blog_posts end end
Camping Views Are Flexible
You can mix and match different view engines such as:
- ERB - mix HTML and Ruby fragments
Camping Controllers Are Easy
Controller routes are declared at the same time as the controller definition:
class Edit < R '/post/(\d+)/edit' def get(post_id) end def post(post_id) end end
Add Features With Plugins
Camping is extensible, allowing you to add functionality using plugins such as:
