This framework is being adopted in areas like e-commerce, mobile apps, education, retail, etc. Many emerging companies and startups are taking a keen interest in rails. New release of rails has some awesome security features contributing to its growth in health and insurance as well.
Now getting to the core, Ruby is the backbone of rails. Ruby is extremely user-friendly and flexible to provide changes to applications in an efficient manner. It has a power of reusability that plays a vital role in its adoption.

Today, the rails environment is able to fill almost every significant gap that we can imagine. We have been provided with some of the best front-end tools with less sass, compass, etc., and back-end support for Mongo, Redis, Elasticsearch, and even Hadoop.
