    I am looking into developing a server/client card game and was wondering if I should look into writing the server and logic side in ruby while writing the client side in javascript or whether I should write everything in javascript.
    I have years of experience with ruby but only brief experience with javascript. I am also concerned with javascript that my source appears in the web page, which is something I would like to avoid.
    If you have examples of a web page with similar requirements I would be very appreciative.
    Also, JRuby could be an option but I have not considered due to its size.

  2. Is this game supposed to be run in a web browser? Does it have to be
    multi platform? If so that basically limits your choices with regard to
    language drastically. You could use HTML + JavaScript, Java Applet (or
    Web Start) or something .Net - but that is not very portable.

    Kind regards

    Yes, it must run on the web browser. It should be similar to

  4. In terms of scalability it *may* be reasonable to implement a lot in
    clients (i.e. JavaScript running in the browser) and only issue REST
    requests with JSON documents as data exchange. Then it barely matters
    what you use server side - all named platforms have sufficient support
    for REST and JSON.

    Kind regards
