Forget clumsy backend UI experiences filled with tons of settings and complexity you didn't request.
With Railsyard you can finally craft a back-end that fits exactly your client's mental model of how a website should be edited: not a single checkbox more.
Someone had to stop this "pages-articles-and-comments" cliché. CMSs should be able to easily handle any type of content, not just the standard cases. Railsyard can build a backend for any model and relations you can think of, in the same ~30 lines of code.
The Railsyard core is and will always remain content-agnostic. Image galleries, rich-text editing, automatic image resize, translations, data exporting, authentication, authorization? Each of these things could be implemented in thousands of different ways, based on the requirements of the project.
That's why we built them as plugins: use the ones we provide, or throw them away, build something completely different and share it with the community.
Rails and gems like CanCan, SimpleForm, Friendly Id, Dragonfly and Globalize makes it already easy to build a backend in no time.
Railsyard refuses to reinvent the wheel again: is just a tiny layer above them. This means less stuff to maintain for us, and less new stuff for you to learn.
Railsyard is a mountable, isolated Rails 3 engine built from the ground up to take advantage of all the latest Rails conventions, asset pipeline included. This makes it easy to use it side by side with other engines, such as Spree.
