I've started a new project to create a plugin for portlets in Rails. It's at http://www.assembla.com/space/rortlet If anyone is interested, I'd love some help. Please email james@knowledgeincorporated if you want to help out. My vision for the first round is a framework that does essentially what Blogspot does. I want to have some default page objects (Markdown/Textile box, last n entries of an RSS feed, etc), but also have it be very pluggable for other applications (Twitter feed, GMail, etc). Every portlet should have access control for all CRUD operations. Since we don't want to force a particular user/authorization scheme on users of the plugin, we need to break that out as much as possible.
