Hello, I am new to Ruby on Rails. I am planning to start building a social network using ROR. What's the best framework or platform to be used? I have heard good things about Diaspora. Has anyone tried it before? Any limitations? Any other platforms you would suggest. Thank you in advance.

Yes yo can fork Diaspora and contribute to it. But first concentrate on developing your Ruby on Rails skill. On Wednesday, January 9, 2013 12:04:04 PM UTC+5:30, Ruby-Forum.com User

ROR, is a framework, you can study more and you can build everything!!!

Thanks for your responses. What I am wondering it's whether Diaspora can work as a platform to build a social network on (the same way Insoshi and Lovdbyless are). I have been doing some research on the project but it's not clear to me whether it can be used for that purpose or not.

I'm also planning similar, but have concern on using Diaspora as the backbone. The best way to find out whether it suits your need is to fork a copy and deploy it by yourself and play with it for a while to have your own conclusion. As Karthikeyan suggest you (and me included) shoudl concentrate on developing RoR skill first. Wish your test goes well and would like to hear from your feedback. Good luck.

I just saw that Lovdbyless and it seems very good. My advice would be, use Lovdbyless. Diaspora follow a different concept of social network. 2013/1/9 Mina Riad <email@example.com> > -- > You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups > "Ruby on Rails: Talk" group. > To post to this group, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org. > To unsubscribe from this group, send email to > email@example.com. > For more options, visit https://groups.google.com/groups/opt_out. > > > -- Att Cssio Soares Cabral <http://br.linkedin.com/in/cassioscabral>
