A client has posed me the task of creating a CMS for a customer
facing website using Ruby on Rails.
Are there any such projects already underway? If not, is a basic CMS
going to be too much for one developer to handle? (I can probably
outsource a bit but the budget isn’t massive)
The project is scheduled to last for 3 months and will probably
involve some basic marketing pages, seach, and a more specific set of
functionality to deal with their core business data/products.
I was only posed the challenge a short time ago so haven’t had chance
to think it through fully yet. Any thoughts/tips/guidance appreciated.
Initial thoughts are to break the editable page areas down into
numbered areas and then use acts_as_list to impose an order for the
items to appear in. Perhaps creating items as helpers that are then
referenced in the database, or storing the ErB in the database?
I’d appreciate if anyone wants to tear me back down to earth on this
