Hi, We want to add a significant new feature into our inhouse RoR system - we want to let admins create web pages that display data pulled from our database. We (I think) have figured out how to give them the data, but, where I would love some advice is on how to give them a robust ability to create the pages. Is using something like Liquid the way to go? They would need to be able to enter full html (or a language that gives you full control over the html) in addition to being able to place values from the data. Has anyone done something like this? Does anyone have any recommendations for plugins, etc that would make writing such a system a bit easier? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Phil

It is used in the shopify product offering. I have never used it, however, the developers of it are well known and top notch folks. It may not be exactly what you're looking for, but food for thought. Thanks, Rick

Thanks Rick... I actually mentioned Liquid in my post. I was hoping for a more robust framework / gem / base application to do more (like drag and drop adding of model fields or some built in views for model visibility) rather than having to code it all ourselves! Thanks... maybe this is just the way it is. On Feb 11, 3:12 pm, Rick F. <firstname.lastname@example.org>
