Ruby on Rails
MixMobi was built using on Ruby on Rails Ruby on Rails (quoting from the website) is a popular open-source framework for building browser-based applications using the Ruby language. Rails encourages good software design by separating the elements that make up your data from their presentation. It lets a developer write easy to understand code by favoring convention over configuration, leading to better long-term application maintainability. Ruby and Rails also have a great community behind them, making writing for the language fun and collaborative.
We host this site with Heroku Heroku is a platform for instant deployment of Ruby/Rails web apps with near-instant scalability.
Your data is backed up via the Heroku platform via machine snapshots of the entire application including source code and the database. Multiple versions of these backups are automatically stored on the Amazon S3 platform and are available for quick restores if needed.
