A few days ago I wrote a post about my choice between Django, Rails or Laravel. here is my post: https://dev.to/rickavmaniac/django-rails-or-laravel-my-personal-journey-30lh
As of today I have not yet made this choice. I have studied the matter from all angles but I cannot make a decision.
Here is my dilemma. Clearly I prefer Ruby on Rails. However as mentioned in my post Ruby on Rails is not very popular locally (and even globally). And I am afraid of the consequences this could have at all levels. Is that really reason enough not to choose it? Would you pass popularity first? Do we base too much of our choices on the cool new kid on the block? Or maybe it is wise to do it?
I guess I'm not the first to experience a similar dilemma.
Your opinion please ...
