What do you mean by “one application in both platforms”? Is it the
same application written in two different languages?
If it is, why on earth would you wanted do that? I mean, besides of
duplicate you work, and not only for development, but for testing,
maintenance, etc…
I’m sure you have your reasons to try to do this, but can you share
them with us so we can properly evaluate the scenario, please?

I mean one application with different platforms means one module in
rails and another module in php or phython or perl like that

I really don’t see how doing this can possibly help you. You might
have a pretty particular scenario to be considering this, I think. I
wouldn’t mix the platforms.
Reasons? It’s harder to maintain, it’s harder to setup, it’s harder to
develop, it’s error prone, might lead to bad practices on one or
another platform, and the most important of all is that I can’t see
even one benefit of doing this.

But your application should be designed based on your needs and I
don’t know your needs. So, if you don’t have REALLY SPECIFIC
requirements, I’d STRONGLY recommend you not to do it.

Hope it helps.

The only reason I would see for doing something like this is if there
were something that one of the platforms offers that the other one
does not have or if doing something in one of the platforms is so much
easier that it would be a waste of time trying to duplicate it in the
other one.

Thank you for your suggestion.I like that too

At the end of the day, it really doesn’t matter to the end user because
it’s
all
Javascript, HTML, and CSS. Next, use the platform best for the job
because
Rails isn’t end of all and be all to web development. It’s just another
tool within
the ever expanding software development toolbox.

Good luck,
