I’m in the process of building a website using RoR and would like
to add the capability to allow registered users of my website create
personal blogs on my site as well as start/participate in discussions
I took a look at some of the blogging engines out there like typo and
mephisto and it looks like those are geared more towards helping me
as the developer of the website, add a blog section to the site where
I can publish my own content (correct me if I’m wrong here).
Are there blogging platforms (either open-source or commercial) and
discussion forum platforms out there for Ruby on rails, that I can
integrate with an existing application, without disrupting / taking
over my existing databases and functionality, that will help with User
Generated Content (UGC).
The famous 15 minute blog demo on the RubyOnRails website does come to
mind i.e. I could just build it myself, but a platform that’s been
tried-and-tested and provides features like spam protection, RSS
syndication among other things would be great. Any help here much
