Any CMS for Ruby on Rails

Well i want to make a photography community site on the lines of
www.gfxartist.com , www.terminus1525.ca, www.phirebrush.com

Where the community votes for every subbmission from a artist and can
comment (like a forum)…

Now gfxartist has used probably SMARTY,php,and their own CMS.

terminus used Drupal,Gallery 2.Some one tells me that this combo is
heavy on resources and slows down sites.

[A] I need AJAX. SO finally it was decided that i use CMSmadesimple + G2

  • SMARTY + xajax.
    OR
    [B] Joomla + Community Builder + G2 bridge + dojo(for ajax).

[C] But then i discovered Ruby on rails. And m amazed by what i see.

  1. Now is there a CMS for ruby on rails,which one’s the best choice for
    my app ?

2.Can G2 be intergrated with Ruby on rails(RoR).Is there any other photo
managment for RoR as good as G2.

3.Is SMART needed at all…

4.any more advantages U would like to suggest…

RadiantCMS is awesome. Especially if you’re new to rails, you wouldn’t
find a code written better than Radiant.

Thnx guys i will check out RadiantCMS…

1.But did U have a look at
www.gfxartist.com , www.terminus1525.ca, www.phirebrush.com
Well i want to make a photography community site on the lines of these
sites.
Is that possible by Radiant CMS.(It should not slow the side down like
Drupal does with G2)

2.With Ruby on rails i suppose AJAX support is built in.
But i m looking for a photo managment software like Gallery 2.(G2)
(see this for more info http://gallery.menalto.com/ )
Can G2 be intergrated with (RoR).

3.Also i guess i have read somewhere that there is no need for something
like SMARTY.Cause RoR does it automatically.
(see this for more info http://smarty.php.net/rightforme.php ) .it is a
template engine OR “Template/Presentation Framework” of sorts.

Guys i m looking for answers to all the 3 question. Whoever can
contribute
on any of these pls help me…
Thnx again for ur earlier responses

I’m aware of only Radiant [http://radiantcms.org/]. I haven’t used
it. If you’re anywhere near the Chicago area this Thursday, John
Long, the creator of Radiant, will be giving a talk [http://chirb.org/
uger/event/show/3] about it at chirb.

RadiantCMS won’t do what you want out of the box. Neither will any of
the other Rails-based content management systems. You’d have to write
a fair amount of code to get the result you want. My recommendation
would be to just go with one of the non-Ruby options you mentioned
earlier. It’s not going to be worth it unless you’re planning on you
know, actually learning Ruby/Rails first.

I can’t believe this wasn’t mentioned… This CMS looks very very very
cool. It is also written on a rails stack, so there yah go. Has a few
ajaxy options. Still in development, but looks more than suitable for
production use.

http://www.eribium.org/eribium/

This looks very good. Aparently this was also written by some whiz 16
year old.

There really aren’t that many ready made solutions in Rails at this
moment. The biggest part of the rails user group are people who enjoy
doing things for themselves. For the CMS part itself you have been
pointed to Radiant CMS. I personally prefer the more lightwight CMS
plugin Comatose from mattmccray.com since it’s better for including a
CMS solution to your own project.

But if you just want something ready to use. Look at the PHP
solutions. Rails is just too young to have as many ready made
solutions. Has nothing to do with easyness or quality. There is just a
limit to how much a framework can do in one year. :slight_smile:

Very well explained Jon…

Though i m still not sure which of the two to go first. I m begining to
think of rails.

Of the CMS suggested i will try to learn more …
Mattmccray
Eribium
Radiant CMS

Let’s see what comes out…

Thnx again

Hi guys …
Thnx for ur answers & suggestions.
Still wondering for the Gallery 2 suggestion.

And

. Rails is just too young to have as many ready made
solutions. Has nothing to do with easyness or quality. There is just a
limit to how much a framework can do in one year. :slight_smile:

Do U guys mean that i should prefer to use php and not rail for my
app.Wellthe php CMS will require tweaking anyway for AJAX. Also do u
mean here that
Rail is not easy , fast.If so what r its advantages then…

 BTW I just came across these template

engineshttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template_enginefor rails(like
SMARTY for php)
Liquid http://home.leetsoft.com/liquid
Masterview http://masterview.org/

I m not adverse to learning ruby / rails. Just that a CMS would make my
job
a little easy. Also if u see www.gfxartist.com how much time do u
suggest it
will take for 1 man to complete if done with rails.

So now since template engine, ajax and a partial CMS prob have been
answered it brings us to the last one Galley2
http://gallery.menalto.com/.Can
that b used with rails.

I have not seen any free Rails solutions that compare to Gallery 2.
You would have to do it yourself.

You misunderstood. Rails is both easy and fast. I meant that it was
young. It’s only just over 1 year old. So there are not nearly as many
ready made solutions to choose from compared to PHP that is 10 years
old.

A month. But actually the power of rails compared to PHP is that you
can have some bare basics in a week or so and then add features later
more easily than in PHP. So you can start out with something less and
add to it gradually.

The reason for why we are recommending PHP for you is that you seem to
be looking for something complete that you only need to tweak and
customize. And there simply isn’t a solution that fits exactly what
you specify here. Yet.
