Good tool to bootstrap a project. Scaffolding is efficient but limited to Ruby language

Rails and Django both arrived on the scene at roughly the same time. Rails made with Ruby, Django with Python. Both were extracted from real projects (Rails from Basecamp, Django from Newspaper websites). Both are an excellent choice, but I prefer Rails mainly for the community.
