John Moses (3473897) writes "I have been working with nodejs alot lately and have been discussing with coworkers if nodejs is taking steam away from ruby at all. I think the popularity of the language is an important talking point when selecting a language and framework for a new project.
I think a graph on the release date of gems over time could help determine an answer. The front page of rubygems only shows data on the most popular, but I am really interested in seeing recent activity. My theory is that if developers’ contributions to different gems is slowing down, then so is the popularity of the language."
