welcome simple solutions for that and of all the CMS systems
I reviewed most seem to be done by programmers who stuff them
full of features the secretary responsible for updating the
company website will only get a heart attack from.
Well, this is exactly what Contribute was designed for… a remote CMS
for largely static content web sites for non-technical people to use.
Not trying to be a wet blanket here but given these three facts:
- vague technical requirements
- needed to be done yesterday
- you’re coming in new to both Ruby and the Rails framework
…and not that you couldn’t learn RoR very quickly but usually when you
have environmental parameters like that, it’s could be tough going for
both you and your clients.
Besides, any excuse to propagate the useage of Rails is good
enough for me. ;o)
Hey, more power to you, really, Rails is exciting stuff! But, building
a custom solution based on this premise… is that really the best
option for your client at this time?
Again, not trying to be discouraging of your efforts or enthusiasm…
Just a friendly reality-check. And I wish you well whatever you decide
and if you go the custom route, we’ll all look forward to seeing it!
