About Us

Trailblazer GmbH is the software company behind Trailblazer. Based in Berlin, but with our consultants and gem developers around the world, we offer consulting and training for all things Trailblazer. Our company reinvests our funds straight back into developing all Trailblazer gems, better documentation and support, plus building up a nice team of fantastic people to help you with Trailblazer.

Trailblazer is in use in thousands of production applications. Our patterns have evolved over a decade of engineering, our gems are mature and battle-tested.

And: we will never stop innovating.


While Trailblazer offers you abstraction layers for all aspects of Ruby On Rails, it does not missionize you. Wherever you want, you may fall back to the fat models, monolithic controllers, global helpers, etc. This is not a bad thing, but allows you to step-wise introduce Trailblazer's encapsulation in your app without having to rewrite it.

Trailblazer is all about structure. It helps re-organize existing code into smaller components where different concerns are handled in separated classes.

Again, you can pick which layers you want. Trailblazer doesn't impose technical implementations, it offers mature solutions for recurring problems in all types of Rails applications.

Trailblazer is no "complex web of objects and indirection". It solves many problems that have been around for years with a cleanly layered architecture. Only use what you like. And that's the bottom line.


Trailblazer is maintained by a small team of developers on GitHub. We’re actively looking to grow this team and would love to hear from you if you’re excited about our gems, high-level abstractions and improving our documentation.
