Ruby on Rails (often shortened to RoR or Rails) is a web application framework for the Ruby programming language and the current framework of the NaNoWriMo website. The transition began in 2011 with the Camp NaNoWriMo website and a Camp and Guts fundraiser in May 2011. Like xoops and Drupal (but unlike PHPBB, it is a website management system, which means that it can maintain both static or mostly static content (such as webpages), blog-type content, and forums.

The transition to Ruby on Rails from Drupal was chosen for RoR's better management of database queries and server management, which lowered the loads on the database by 75%.
