One way to do things, not ten.

Opposite example: implementations of OOP in Lisp and JS.




I'm not sure that I understand your definition of the term "opinionated". Is Haskell opinionated? Is Fortran?


I take opinionated to mean one obvious way to do things. Python and Go are opinionated. Ruby and Perl are not. But RoR is very opinionated.

IMO Python wants to be opinionated (in your 'one obvious way' definition), and it actually was 10-15yrs ago when Perl was the comparison, but ongoing progress has eroded that a lot - especially across the stdlib :)

But yeah Go and RoR are probably two of the most opinionated technologies I can think of.
