Topic: Rails based CMS


I am looking for a Rails based CMS with features such as: news system, uploading and creating galleries, searching and RSS feed. Something that will make possible to deploy a website in fast and elegant way. Also it would be nice to have a system that is very customizable and writing for it extensions like user account system, newsletter or sitemap will be easy.

I am new to rails but i have decided to give it a try cause my friends say that it is very strong framework.

Re: Rails based CMS

Radiant looks like the biggest:

I am using a smaller one named Goldberg:

What I like about Goldberg is it only does users, static content, and access control.  It installs over a base app as a plugin, and mostly stays out of the way and lets you write your own code for galleries, etc.

Radiant does alot more, but I felt it abstracted me from working on the rails code directly.  I already know ruby and erb, etc, why should I learn radiant's markup too?  I would recommend Radiant for someone that doesn't enjoy getting their hands dirty though.

Re: Rails based CMS - More plugins and packages.
