I have created and now maintain the website ratsdeville.com (http://
ratsdeville.com/index_e.html for english) for my brother. He creates
more and more content for it each week and I'm seriously feeling the
pain now archiving everything manually and making sure that links
works once items are archived (which I lost control of).
Like you can see, it is basically a news site about art expos and
people in Montreal. Several sections gets updated on a regular basis
(this week, culture, art) and the rest is mostly static. I need each
of this section to show only the most recent items but I also need a
way to find the older items.
Would rails make a nice solution for me? I know some Perl that I
learned by doing bioinformatics. I wanna learn an object oriented
language and Ruby seems very nice. I can handle Postgresql, I know
Linux very well. If rails is a solution, I would probably have my own
server running ubunu/mongrel/rails.
