I cant understand what Ruby On Rails does

First when I googled the subject i think i understand a bit of it. I
think that ROR is a helping program - a sort of WYSIWYG editor for ruby
that helpes you making applications quicker.

Is that right, or am I totally wrong?

Totally wrong :frowning:

Go to the official website and read the home page, for starters; you'll
see this right on the home page:

"Rails is a full-stack framework for developing database-backed web
applications according to the Model-View-Control pattern. "

Rails is not an editor of any kind, it's a collection of Ruby libraries
that help you quickly write database-backed web applications.

If you want to write websites in Ruby, Rails is one popular way to do
it (there are others).

I'd just suggest you start with the official website (rubyonrails.org),
read as much as you can there, and then feel free to come back to the
list with more questions.
