Yes.

Ruby is an effective and concise language that has a good enough
filesystem API to be used for scripting. Its syntax is weird to an
eye familiar with C-style idioms, and surprisingly formally complex to
any eye (it isn't an elegant language with few special cases like Lisp
or whatever, it has quite a few oddities), but it is certainly a
language that some programmers seem to find friendlier and more
natural in many contexts than C, Python or Perl.

No idea. I've only ever dealt with Ruby in single-language web applications.
