Daniel is correct in that standard rhtml is not that easy to edit with a
(warning shameless plug ahead)
However if you are interested in doing WYSIWYG editing then you might
out the MasterView plugin for rails which extends rails with an html
friendly templating engine which can be edited nicely with a WYSIWYG
without giving up all the power of layouts, partials, and rails helpers.
Check out the website (http://masterview.org), rubyforge project (
http://rubyforge.org/projects/masterview) or the video to learn more (
http://masterview.org/videos/masterview_quick_start.html). The video
demonstrates using NVU to edit your templates and how the changes
get reflected in the application.
MasterView is open source (MIT license) and available now.
I’d be happy to answer any questions that you have regarding the project
