search cancel – The New MVC Handler

Merbivore.comMerb is a MVC handler. In non-programming speak, Merb separates data from user interface so programmers and engineers can work on interface without messing up the data handling.


Merb can be compared to Ruby on Rails but with a lot more flexibility. That’s the beauty of Merb—it’s adaptable. Merb is agnostic in many ways: ORM, JavaScript library, and template language. Instead, it uses plug-ins allowing for easy integration with a number of applications. Merb already has third-party support for the ActiveRecord, DataMapper, and Sequel ORMs. Merb has everything you want in an MVC handler: plugins, controllers, mailers, parts, exceptions, test and specs, generators. It’s built for speed, lightweight, and a breeze to handle. In Their Own Words

“Like Ruby on Rails, Merb is an MVC framework. Unlike Rails, Merb is ORM-agnostic, JavaScript library agnostic, and template language agnostic, preferring plugins that add in support for a particular feature rather than trying to produce a monolithic library with everything in the core. In fact, this is a guiding principle of the project, which has led to third-party support for the ActiveRecord, DataMapper, and Sequel ORMs.”

Why It Might Be A Killer

Merb makes MVR easy. It’s built for flexibility. It’s free. It’s powerful. Developers and programmers ought to have a field day with it.

Some Questions About

Can Merb take over the MVR field? Ruby on Rails is hard to beat.
