Complex software projects aren't just a single app. These projects usually spawn dozens or hundreds of supplementary standalone scripts which are just as important as the app itself. Examples include - data validation, deployment, monitoring, database maintenance, backup & restore, configuration management, crawling, ETL, analytics, log file processing, custom reports, etc. One of the contributors to TTY::Command counted 222 scripts in the bin directory for his startup.
Why should we be handcuffed to sh or bash for these scripts when we could be using Ruby? Ruby is easier to write and more fun, and we gain a lot by using a better language. It's nice for everyone to just use Ruby everywhere.
