Sometimes the best solution is a standalone web application that you can give to a client or customer to just drop on a machine and run. Maybe it is a web service, or a desktop data entry application, or mass deployed background agent. In any case, there are situations where deploying a full ruby stack may not be an option. This talk will cover the Crate project and how it may be used to package your web application. The end result is a statically built executable of the ruby interpreter and all dependent binary extensions. The application code, ruby stdlib the web framework itself, and all assets are packed into one or more SQLite databases.
