I have no idea about rails features... my contribution to this scene is

Beach provides a framework for writing Modules of components both on the
front and backend, and the interface between them, So for example there
are BeachLogin-Seaside components, and BeachLogin-Pier components, with
BeachLogin-MySql backend component.

Beach uses Magritte heavily, In the front end, data models once
described in magritte, can be presented as a form generated from the
magritte description. In the backend the magritte description can map
the data into MySql tables.

At the moment Beach is just out of the starting gate, and is being used
in one project. It contains many small packages (like seaside29) loading
it will proably not be panless. There is a package Beach-Packages which
describes the dependencies (in theory)

Beach is in squeaksource.com/Beach
