Behind the name

The name Boost is derived and takes inspiration from a combination of puns and admired software products.
  • Rails uses the Action, and Action Pack monikers. Boost is en exaggeration of Action.
  • Boost can be broken into the composite word for Boot and Strap. A fairly well known software idea for system. In itself a pun from the phrase “pulling oneself by one’s own bootstrap”.
  • It also lends itself to additional puns, boost pack, turbo boost, nitro boost, booster.
  • Minimally inspired by Ruby on Rails, Cocoa, and others.
