I've been thinking a lot about multi-app web projects, and how none of
the Ruby web application frameworks I know offers a clean solution to
build a site that conveniently integrates multiple apps (e.g. a core
site and a forum).

Integrating a rails app with beast (a rails forum engine) for example is
just as cumbersome as integrating a rails app with a php forum engine.
This shouldn't be like that, when Ruby can offer so much more elegance.

I would like to get some insights from the community and stimulate a
productive discussion of multi-app capabilities for ruby web frameworks.
I wrote a longer blog post detailing what I think sucks about current
multi-app integration (exemplified by my works using rails), and how to
fix some of it.

There are currently a lot of promising, growing ruby web frameworks, and
right now seems like a good time to put this out there for
consideration.

Here is the link to my full post:
