Drupal like cms

Hi Rails team,

How difficult to develop a Drupal like CMS in Rails? How long it will
take?

Not an easy task / app in Rails.

If started by a team of members, it will take min 1 years with all
common
functionality…

thanks

If it takes one year to develop a CMS in rails then is that rubbish that
have tutorials
that claim develop a blog in 15 minutes?

It would take less than a year to develop a CMS for a client (I’ve done
it a
NUMBER of times), but to develop a CMS framework like Drupal would take
quite a while. Think about how long Drupal has been around and how many
man
years of effort have gone in to it.

You can develop a blog in 15-20 minutes, I’ve also put together some
fairly
complex CMS systems in a week or two of effort, but to build a complete
framework that would compete with Drupal would take a large amount of
effort.

Cheers,

Andy and Ramesh,

  Thanks for your views. I wonder why this is not taking up. I know

drupal is stealth.
But with handy rails in hand, if we start now, in a year we could make
not
only drupal,
a double or triple that of a drupal. Because I believe that drupal with
PHP,
not that
easy to make upgrades other than the core drupal team.

There’s some CMS on Rails already. Had no experience with them, usually
you’re working on complex web services on Rails, rather than
Business-card-like sites. But here is a list

I guess Radiant CMS is most well-known and with bigger community.

I’d say that the reasons are:

  1. Ready-built CMS systems like this are normally for the less
    technically
    capable - with that in mind, hosting a PHP application is much easier on
    most hosts than a Rails site.

  2. If you want to use a CMS system, the current systems are easily good
    enough and you probably don’t care what programming language it’s
    written
    in.

  3. If you are technical and want a CMS system you can customise for your
    needs or your client’s needs, then Radiant is probably good enough to
    get
    you up and running.

  4. If you are custom designing a site for a client, it’s quick enough to
    throw a CMS system together using a couple of generators/themes and gems

or build your own the first time and then keep using them for each new
client.

Just my 2p-worth

Cheers,

Andy
