Sad to Say It But I miss Ruby

So I'm writing a quick CRUD app for work and I decided to go with Django mainly because of the power of the built in Admin interface. This is not a real app. I just wanted to get some data in a database and maybe generate some simple reports, so Rails didn't make sense. It would take too long. Plus, following the Django tutorial for the umteenth time during the last couple of years gave me 80% of the functionality I needed in just a few hours. Yeah Django migrations are non-existent and there is not Model inheritance, but since this isn't a real app (basically something quick where a wiki or Excel wouldn't do) I was left with no choice.

But I definitely miss the density of Ruby.
