How to make Saas application? Is it possible?

Hi everybody!

I want to know, is it possible to create Saas application with Ruby and
Rubyonrails?
I’m newbie, so I wanted to know opinion of more experienced developers.

Sincerely,
Asset

Well, basically you can say that every web application is SaaS. What
makes SaaS special is probably that access is limited to number of
users (e.g. from one company who bought the SaaS). So, if you host a
web application, limit access and make people pay for it you have
SaaS. Since with Rails you can create web applications and restrict
access, the answer would be “yes”.

see http://guides.rubyonrails.org/security.html “7 User Management”

Kind regards

That’s funny. I was thinking Sass: http://sass-lang.com/

I guess until we get a reply we may never know. :slight_smile:

Yes it is.

See 37signals and basecamp for a well-known example from the author of
Rails: http://37signals.com/svn/archives/000606.php

Hi Brian,

Thanks for answer! BTW, do you know what protocol they used (like REST,
UDDI)?

Basecamp is primarily a web application; that means it uses HTML and
HTTP. But it might also provide an API for accessing data stored in the
application.

If you want to find out about basecamp, then I suggest you (1) read
their blog postings, and (2) sign yourself up for a free account and try
it out.

Yes, I mean SaaS)) SaaS application with subscription, basically it
should work with documents online.
