The gap here is because of the frameworks: ruby on rails and node.js. Without them, they both are poles apart from each other.
Both languages are the same by nature yet have some contrasts in the working areas.
- Ruby is also an object-oriented language by nature, but it is a general-purpose language. And its codes work on the principle of interruption.
|Purpose||It is developed for web pages. It can change a static web page to turn into a dynamic web page.||It is developed for beginners to code with ease. Mainly web development was made it easier.|
|OOPS||It is an object-oriented scripting dynamic language. Interpreted rather than compiling when running.||It is also an object-oriented, dynamic interrupted language.|
Frontend or backend?
- Ruby in web development is only used in the back-end using ruby on rails.
Node.js is not suitable for handling large data. But when it comes to something big, mainly server-side, then ruby on rails is the way to go.
The expert developers in both these languages are paid well by the companies; in 2021, the job opportunities of both are quite high.
- Ruby developers can make around 96,681$ annually.
