I work with a monolithic legacy Rails + ActiveRecord + Resque application with some 200 controllers and 200 models. We are using Rails 3.2 and evaluating whether to upgrade Rails or switch entirely away to a more maintainable framework.
I have been using Roda + Sequel + Sidekiq in some microservices and have been very impressed with the simplicity and clarity of the framework. We have had trouble with 'magic' in rails over the years.
1. I saw on the roda-i18n gem's github page that there is an idea: "Sequel DBLoader for DB based translations support". Has that ever been pursued? Any suggestions for implementation? Also, there has been no activity in the roda-i18n gem for 3 years, is the plugin still maintained?
2. We use authlogic. I saw that there is a https://github.com/jeremyevans/rodauth
plugin. We've customized our authlogic integration pretty heavily, and use omniauth to allow logging in via SSO.
