Document Management System in Rails

Hi All

Is anyone aware of any Document Management System developed in Rails.
Googling didn’t help me find any Rails based solution.

The DMS I need, need to have the following feature apart form the usual
ones.

  1. Version control of documents.
  2. Tracking version control for each group of users independently from
    the other group . These groups may share the same document name but may
    have different contents or revisions.
  3. In built file server if possible.

Can somebody please point me in the right direction.

thanks

You know the main purpose of Rails is so you can build something like
this yourself. :wink:

Ofcourse the last resort is to build it by myself. But this question was
intended for someone who knew of any existing RoR based solutions out
there.

Anyone knows anything about a DMS based on Ruby/RoR??

Theres nothing out there that I’m aware of.

Surely half the fun of development is developing a bespoke application
that meets your clients requirements, not just trying to find something
off the shelf. :wink:

If you just want something off the shelf you’ll probably have more
success finding something written in PHP.

You are right about PHP and also about the fun that I will have
developing it. The problem with PHP imho is it sucks compared to
Ruby/RoR, although there are many solutions out there.

thanks for your reply

I think it would be great if there was a DMS Rails Engine that we could
easily include in applications. I have no need to write one for myself
for fun :slight_smile:

It is not a solution off the shelf, but check streamlined, built on top
of rails:

what is a DMS? how is that different than a CMS? in any case, there are
several CMS, such as Radiant and Mephisto. additionally, you can
construct your own quite easily, using CRUD magic, FCK and similar
editors, and acts_as_versioned and similar plugins…

i don’t know of any such system, but there is acts_as_versioned (or
something
similar).

HTH.
