Let’s make an important distinction here:
Ruby = beautiful OO language
Rails = full-stack MVC framework built using Ruby
So from that perspective, no, you cannot break free from MVC if you
use Rails. That is what Rails brings you. HOWEVER, Rails is
‘integrated’ with Ruby as a collection of gems that extend the core
Ruby classes. The upshot of that is that you can pick and choose
which gems you’d like to work with and develop your own RUBY framework
that takes advantage of Rails’ work. As an example, It’s not uncommon
to see ActiveRecord used outside of Rails these days.
There are other Ruby-based web frameworks out there. If you really
want to break free of MVC you might google on ruby and web frameworks
rather than rails.
