Python and Ruby are both object-oriented languages and very flexible and dynamic in their functionalities. Python came into being in 1989 and about 5 years later Ruby was introduced. In both of them the architectures is based on the requirement of the programmers. Both of these languages are very popular with the programmers. In both of them the objective is to write clean, readable and concise code. Though they are similar in many respect but there are some inherent differences and that will be clear from the following specific details about these two languages.
In python there is generally one specific way to do a thing and the programmer has to do it in that way only. Python can build a complex web spider, build an API or can help in writing short scripts. This programming language is used by some of the big companies like Dropbox, Google, You Tube, Quora etc.
Contrary to Python, it has multiple ways to do a thing and solve a problem. This is the main difference between the two. Ruby is used in many top sites like Twitter, Airbnb, Hulu, Github etc.
