I'm new to rails but when proper ruby/rails skills are acquired, I
shall consider your suggestion.


If you choose to go that route, I've just stumbled on something that you 
might (or not) find useful: Mack framework. Its yet another Ruby web 
framework with perhaps a bit different goals then those of Rails. From 
the site (www.mackframework.com):


 Mack is a Ruby web application framework that is being built from the
  ground up to aid in the development of distributed, portal-like
  applications that have a need for speed. Mack supports best of breed
  technologies in a modular way.

Yeah, Mack is looking pretty cool and is very actively developed.  Give 
it a shot!

Re: [Radiant] looking for portal functionality

2008-09-25 Thread Sean Cribbs
I hate to burst your bubble, but Radiant neither is nor intends to be 
portal software.  Radiant does content-focused  sites well (think 
brochure-ware) and partially-dynamic sites with a decent amount of work, 
but is not designed to aggregate other applications.  Luckily, Rails is 
such a flexible framework that such a mashup (some clever API design 
combined with ActiveResource, maybe?) should be fairly straightforward.


If you do come up with something and can find the means to open-source 
some of it, I'm sure the community would be interested in what you 
produce.  The portal space is kind of lacking in the Rails world at the 
moment.

Hello,

My first post. :)

I'm looking for this functionality and would like to know if RadiantCMS can
provide:

We need a portal system like that provided in the Java world by JBoss or
Liferay in that:

1. Our custom rails applications can be hosted or integrated into the
CMS framework.
2. Access to these application can then be controlled via the CMS' built in
authentication/authorization system.

Seems like this could be a huge boon for organizations such as mine looking
for an entry point into rails application development at the enterprise
level.

Any comments, suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Joe
