Every Ruby web framework has its own way of configuring itself as well as third-party dependencies. In some cases it’s largely up to you, in other cases it’s clearly spelled out.

As a maintainer of Bridgetown, I’m currently working through all these issues as I ready the next major release which will feature a brand-new initialization system. Listen to the show to hear a rundown of some of the configuration setups out there and what we’ve chosen to focus on for Bridgetown!
