Thanks for your feedback..
I also looked into Locomotive, good ( I know Mongoid) but the project
After looking at other existing Rails CMS : Alchemy, Radiant,
Refinery, Comfortable Mexican Sofa ( C.M.S. !) and also browserCMS, my
feeling is that none of them are actually true good engines for our
project .. rather than describing what I mean by that , better giving
an example of a good one : "forem" ( https://github.com/radar/forem
'forem' brings a complete forum app as an engine to our existing rails
- can be mounted at root or subdomain level,
- reuse our Devise authentication module, forem initialize with the
declared 'user' class, and 'current_user' helper
- forem internal authorization is based on CanCan, and permissions
can be superseded within the declared 'user' class
said that, we are currently looking into Alchemy code ( good 'content'
management ) to see how we could adapt it (to the 'forem' way)
regarding authentication and authorization ( I know that the new
Refinery aims at using authentication/authorization engines.... but
Refinery cannot be mounted at subdomain level which is mandatory in

I already have a project with multiple subdomains under development
( Rails 3.2.8 , MySQL, Haml , Devise , Cancan )
www.myproject.com is the main site
many subdomains will be created : sub1.myproject.com,
sub2.myproject.com, sub3.myproject.com, ...
We need now to add CMS functionalities to the main domain and to each
subdomain, ( different layouts , different sets of pages )
What could be currently the best CMS engine choice ? ( at least the
most adapted to this goal..)
Radiant , Alchemy Refinery or even Locomotive ( with this one, I know
we should switch to Mongoid ORM, but why not ..) or any other
thanks for feedback
I've just started building a site with BrowserCMS. It's fairly well
featured, and allows for easy integration of outside controllers and
models. Documentation is good - not great - however the developers are
really responsive in the google group.
here is the project:https://github.com/browsermedia/browsercms
One thing about browserCMS is that it uses it's own authentication
methods so you might have issues using Devise.
I also tried locomotive but i found it lacking in features and
documentation. Also the switch to mongoid has a learning curve to it if
you're not already familiar. Locomotive has potential, but it is still
early in development.https://github.com/locomotivecms
