…into our actual site, what ways we can make that style, functionality, and experience work through a CMS .

When adding interactive elements to editorial pieces there's a fine line between enhancement and distraction. How did you find the sweet spot for Cover Stories?

That's one thing I'm really kinda paranoid about and internally I'm always trying to be the devil's advocate. It's cool that we can blend video, music, moving imagery and all this stuff into a …

ruby-lang.org has switched its platform from Radiant CMS to Jekyll in spring 2013. Everyone can now edit the content through GitHub. How about that? However, the current design is built for the typical size of a desktop or laptop but not for smartphones and tablets. We still need more work for the design!

Ruby's 20th anniversary this year seems like an appropriate occasion for a call to submit design ideas for ruby-lang.org. Please read the instructions and send your design …

They're continuing to refine Merlin, their CMS.

They have thousands of hours of archived videos to upgrade from a variety of older formats.

And like any creative designers, they're always watching for new technologies.

Inventing their own system was a lot of work. Was it worth the effort? Matt thinks so. Based on the sheer volume of users we have, I believe that we are the first site to figure out how to provide a smooth and most importantly scalable video streaming experience …

…platforms like WordPress were taking off as viable alternatives to enterprise-level CMS, email services like Mailchimp were affordable, and the growing prevalence of 3G Internet made the prospect of connectedness possible, though still expensive.

When I joined the CURE team in October of 2009 as a one-man-IT-band, it was plausible for a tiny team of developers (in our initial case, 1.5 developers and one designer) to invent and implement a solution that anyone who had ever blogged could …

…upload recipes to the database at the same time as I worked on the buildout -- all possible via a CMS that I set up before the design of Proodessor was finalized. I must admit, it was pretty awesome to be working on the code for this web app and watch the recipe count slowly increase.

Choosing a CMS

The CMS that Proofessor is built on is called Craft . Developed by Pixel and Tonic, version 1 was released on June 4th of this year, just a few days before my internship began …

…to extend the platform. And this energy is part of the reason why it's one of the most popular CMS platforms around.

Drupal Can Sometimes Be Slow

The dark side of having such an easy-to-extend platform and a welcoming community is that anyone can extend Drupal. Anyone with sufficient PHP skills and the gumption to dig into the API docs can write modules. As of today, there are over 25,000 developers on Drupal.org , and over 21,000 modules.

This means the Drupal …

Ruby on Rails lacks a CMS with the mindshare of, say, WordPress, which is good, because every unpatched Ruby on Rails CMS delivered to a non-technical company to serve as their website or backend to their mobile application will be compromised .

There are many developers who are not presently active on a Ruby on Rails project who nonetheless have a vulnerable Rails application running on localhost:3000. If they do, eventually, their local machine will be compromised . (Any …

Oleg , tired of battling with brittle Content Management Systems and their lack of proper rails integration, built his own prototype on that same Mexico adventure. He aptly named it Comfortable Mexican Sofa ( CMS) based on the place where he coded the prototype. We've now shifted to calling the CMS ‘ Comfy' , we Open Sourced it a couple years back, and have now added a number of modular components to the system - https://github.com/comfy .

…a Bad Idea. It's complicated, it has edge cases even the designers don't understand, and it appears to be trying to fix a problem that doesn't really bother most rubyists.

Why Django and Rails CMS Are So Rare - Well, they're not, really. (See the list I compiled a few years back). But they sure don't have a lot of impact. An industry veteran thinks about why this is.
