New web platform

At Pixsta this week we chose our development platform for the next stage of the team’s development. We evaluated a lot of tools under a variety of criteria, and debated long and hard.

In the end we chose Grails, the Rails-like web framework for the Groovy language. Reasons include:

  • It runs on a familiar Java stack (Hibernate, Spring, etc.)
  • Script is compiled to Java bytecode
  • It uses convention over configuration
  • We have a few projects under our belts with this framework already

Goodbye PHP, we will not meet again.
