I'm trying to build a simple site with Sinatra. Is there an easy way to make a Ruby app without Rails?

Yes, just install a Nginx + Passenger app in the control panel, and use its bin/gem to install whatever gems you need, then configure your Nginx to serve your app. We have instructions for installing gems available in our Rails docs but they'll work for any other Ruby-based apps that you run via Passenger. Hope that helps!

Thank you so much! I'm trying to get away from Drupal and have been told Sinatra is a good first step, as the Rails/Django MVC stuff is still a bit over my head.
