Ruby on Rails Sunday, March 5, 2017

Hi all, 

I'm looking to create a cross-platform (iOS, Android, Web) chat up for a research interest in linguistics and language (if you're interested: ). 

I'm sure most experienced developers (ruby/rails enthusiasts or not) agree that you should pick the right tool for the right job, so I wanted to get a feel for the community thoughts on using Rails 5 as a framework for building a cross platform chat app? 

Is the new ActionCable API hacky, or rubust/stable/easy to work with? 

Most people have suggested I go with something like meteor for real time actions (which I have used before), but I do enjoy how rails feels to work with ! 

Just wanting to get a feel if anyone has experience doing this or recommendations, objections, etc?
