Content Management the Rails way

Hi guys,

I’m currently looking into the CMS’s we use at the moment in house with an aim to replace them with a Rails / Ruby based system to match our application stacks (we do 50/50 app / CMS development). At the moment we’re using Joomla and a CMS written in ColdFusion.

Question is, I’ve looked at Radiant, Comatose etc and these all seem very very simplistic. Is anyone aware of anything out there similar to systems such as Joomla? Is there anything out there that doesn’t treat a content item solely as a page but as something that can be rendered in lots of different places at once?

Cheers fellas

Not sure what you mean by the last part, but Radiant has snippets that can be rendered in lots of different places. If you could clarify a bit more about what you mean, I could help you see if Radiant is similar to what you need.

+1. Also, Radiant is super-easy to extend with plugins.
