In general Rails seems to be the only active Ruby Open Source project
that combines
Database integration with the web. And a great job it does too. However there is
probably too much there for someone new.

There are several Ruby web projects out there that try different
approaches, are usually
smaller (easier to get to grips with, more opportunity to contribute)
and often advocate
a more pluggable approach to web stacks. Usually they allow you to choose your
Data Layer, or your presentation layer, give you fine grained control
over Routing etc.

Rack, Merb, Sinatra, Camping etc. I don't know how active Nitro or
IOWA are anymore.
