Topic: Best packages for social networking site
I'm working on a startup and we're currently determining the best path to go down: Django or Ruby on Rails. I've already asked the Django camp what they think, so I thought I'd turn around and ask what the Rails community thinks, too .
Also, we're looking into possible software packages to use with Rails, but we're interested in creating a highly customized, scalable website and we're worried that as we customize things more deeply, things will become more hassle than they're worth.
So what do you think? Do you have a compelling reason why we should pick RoR over Django? If we do decide RoR, do you think we should use certain software packages or start from scratch?
