How do you structure frontend / backend (admin)?

Hi!

I’m new to RoR and I have worked in PHP before. The past year I’ve
been working with Joomla! and got used to the separated frontend and
backend. I want to have something similar in my Rails app.

So, how do you do it? Do you create the admin area from scratch or do
you use something like active scaffolding or rails_admin?

I installed rails_admin today (https://github.com/sferik/rails_admin)
and i looks very nice but I’m a little afraid that it will be a b*tch
to customize…

Any “best practices”?

Best Regards
Linus

I have always preferred building an admin backend from scratch; of
course,
that also means I’ve never used any of the plugins you’re mentioning, so
I
really can’t say how good they are or aren’t. :slight_smile:
