Ruby on Rails with CMS and other fun stuff
Been working about a month now on a Ruby on Rails project. The goal of the product is to make a site that can be spun up numerous times as a Saas product. I has to include CMS elements Settings area to change logo, colors etc. Connect to a remote SOAP API to create cloneable content from and users. User admin area with Roles Reporting Ckeditor that integrates with Paperclip on non-cms pages.
Paperclip and S3
Great gem for attaching images to a rails app (maybe even Laravel). This article made it clear how to set this up https://devcenter.heroku.com/articles/paperclip-s3 And this one made it clear why my development environment was not working. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/11760597/s3-paperclip-working-on-heroku-but-not-localhost I had to edit my .bash_profile But instead of restarting the terminal I just did source ~/.bash_profile and then started that rails server again in that terminal. If only I found a tutorial on using fog and paperclip since I am already using that gem for refinerycms
Technologies for a Saas
I had to review for a client what CMS to choose. Keeping in mind the CMS was only part of the product and a small part. Small in that the big value to the product seem to fall more on the APP part of the project that allowed the user to make a question set from an JSON based API. So a bulk of the work would be building that.
