Typus: Admin interface for Rails applications

Typus is designed for a single activity:

Trusted users editing structured content.

Typus doesn't try to be all the things to all the people but it's extensible enough to match lots of use cases.

Key Features

  • Access control by users and roles.
  • CRUD and custom actions for your models on a clean interface.
  • I18n.
  • Extensible and overwritable templates.
  • Low memory footprint.
  • MIT License, the same as Rails.
