No. With that stack you can build business and make money. Not a toy app.

That being said, if you were doing a toy app then you would take out PG. You don't need all the dev gems they just make your life easier / faster startup. If you come from php then you like to make your life hard, so webconsole and byebug are out. Your doing a toy app so you don't need turbolinks, coffescript, or Sass. It's a toy so what does it matter if a person downloads 3MB of javascript. Take out uglifier. You're not doing an API so jbuilder is gone.

This is the new Gemfile.

  gem 'rails',        '5.0.0'
  gem 'sqlite3', '1.3.11'

Here is a single file rails boot, that includes downloading the gems and running a test.
