My friend and I (both new to RoR) were having a discussion today about
whether or not you could build an exact replica of eBay using on Ruby
on Rails. I think that it could in fact be done, or at least a very
close model of the same concept. My friend seems to think that maybe
in fact, it could not be done.
What are your thoughts? Could an eBay clone be built using only Ruby
on Rails? What do you think would be the pitfalls of doing it? We are
both pretty new to Rails, but the topic did certainly ignite me to do
some thinking and searching into how it would be built and how it
could be done.
