Hulu.com on Rails

Just an FYI since i know this list likes knowing about some higher
volume
websites running Rails. Looks like the new video initiative with
NBC/FOX
called Hulu (www.hulu.com) is running on rails with nginx.
Cheers
Adam

Trivia fact: It’s using Merb on the backend. :slight_smile:

interesting, what is MERB ?

Another Ruby based framework written by Ezra Z. (from
EngineYard and a number of other Ruby projects) and a team of
developers.

So, nginx <–> rails <–> merb, or no rails at all? I ask, because at
work we were planning on maybe doing the former, to use merb to
offload long running tasks onto a ticket-based resource.

interesting so its a slim-down rails like framework that only uses the
components you need instead of embedding them in the actual framework…

I’m not entirely sure; you could ask Ezra in the Merb IRC channel
(#merb). He was involved getting it setup I think.

Yup, basically. There’s a Merb IRC channel (#merb) and mailing list
if you’re interested in more.

I don’t want to clog up the Rails list with all this Merb chatter. :slight_smile:

So, as I remember starting this thread, I found a techcrunch article
(and
apparently confirmed by a hulu developer) that it is indeed built on
Ruby on
Rail and not Merb. Just thought I would help clarify, link below, one
of
the bullets says “Hulu is built on Ruby on Rails”
