BrowserCMS: Humane Content Management for Rails

BrowserCMS is a general purpose, open source Web Content Management System (CMS) that supports Ruby on Rails v3.2. It can be used as a standalone CMS, added to existing Rails projects or extended using Rails Engines. It is designed to support three distinct groups of users:

  1. Non-technical web editors who want a humane system to manage their site, without needing to understand what HTML or even Rails is.
  2. Designers who want to create large and elegantly designed websites with no artificial constraints by the CMS.
  3. Developers who want to drop a CMS into their Rails projects, or create CMS driven websites for their clients.

Features

BrowserCMS is intended to offer features comparable to commercial CMS products, which can support larger teams of editors. This means having a robust set of features as part of its core, as well as the capability to customize it via modules.

Here's a quick overview of some of the more notable features:
