It’s a way of maintaining and generating Web sites.
It presently uses TextMate (a superb writing / programming tool, and very nimble when dealing with a big hierarchy of files). In a sense that means RubyFrontier is Mac-only, though there isn’t any a priori reason for this (since Ruby is platform-agnostic).
