HTML5 vs JRuby: What are the differences?

What is HTML5? 5th major revision of the core language of the World Wide Web. HTML5 is a core technology markup language of the Internet used for structuring and presenting content for the World Wide Web. As of October 2014 this is the final and complete fifth revision of the HTML standard of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). The previous version, HTML 4, was standardised in 1997.

What is JRuby? A high performance, stable, fully threaded Java implementation of the Ruby programming language. JRuby is the effort to recreate the Ruby (http://www.ruby-lang.org) interpreter in Java. The Java version is tightly integrated with Java to allow both to script any Java class and to embed the interpreter into any Java application. See the docs directory for more information.

HTML5 and JRuby can be primarily classified as "Languages" tools.

"New doctype" is the primary reason why developers consider HTML5 over the competitors, whereas "Java" was stated as the key factor in picking JRuby.

JRuby is an open source tool with 3.32K GitHub stars and 830 GitHub forks. Here's a link to JRuby's open source repository on GitHub.

9GAG, Asana, and Disqus are some of the popular companies that use HTML5, whereas JRuby is used by Groupon, Soundcloud, and Lookout. HTML5 has a broader approval, being mentioned in 3166 company stacks & 3482 developers stacks; compared to JRuby, which is listed in 13 company stacks and 4 developer stacks.

      What are some alternatives to HTML5 and JRuby?
      Android SDK
      Android provides a rich application framework that allows you to build innovative apps and games for mobile devices in a Java language environment.
      JavaScript
      JavaScript is most known as the scripting language for Web pages, but used in many non-browser environments as well such as node.js or Apache CouchDB. It is a prototype-based, multi-paradigm scripting language that is dynamic,and supports object-oriented, imperative, and functional programming styles.
      WordPress
      The core software is built by hundreds of community volunteers, and when you’re ready for more there are thousands of plugins and themes available to transform your site into almost anything you can imagine. Over 60 million people have chosen WordPress to power the place on the web they call “home” — we’d love you to join the family.
      Java
      Java is a programming language and computing platform first released by Sun Microsystems in 1995. There are lots of applications and websites that will not work unless you have Java installed, and more are created every day. Java is fast, secure, and reliable. From laptops to datacenters, game consoles to scientific supercomputers, cell phones to the Internet, Java is everywhere!
      AngularJS
      AngularJS lets you write client-side web applications as if you had a smarter browser. It lets you use good old HTML (or HAML, Jade and friends!) as your template language and lets you extend HTML’s syntax to express your application’s components clearly and succinctly. It automatically synchronizes data from your UI (view) with your JavaScript objects (model) through 2-way data binding.

      Read more on how to extend the OutSystems UI with HTML here.

      At the user interface level, the platform provides a rich visual editor that allows web interfaces to be composed by dragging and dropping. Instead of purely writing HTML, developers use visual widgets. These widgets are wrapped and are easy to reuse just by dragging and dropping without everyone needing to understand how they are built.

      I mostly just use it when I need to customize something from Bootstrap or *SemanticUI *and when I need to tweak tiny details or get around the limitations of Javascript.

      We exclusively use HTML5 instead of XHTML (or even older) HTML-versions. We like the new unity that HTML5 offers and try to keep our code according to the conventions.
