Comatose

  • Version: 3.0.0 (beta)
  • Author: Bryan Taylor (originally written by Matt McCray)
  • Website: github.com/rubyisbeautiful/comatose
  • Email: artofobjects at gmail dot com

Comatose is a micro CMS designed for being embedded into existing Rails applications.

It's intended for simple CMS support. Comatose supports

It's meant to be lean, mean, easily embedded, and easy to re-skin for existing applications. If you need something more, I would recommend looking into Radiant, Mephisto, Refinery, BrowserCMS, or Locomotive.

For more information, see the Getting Started guide.

Requirements

  • Rails 3.0.x (3.0.9)
  • acts_as_list-rails3, acts_as_tree_rails3, and liquid gems are required (at the moment)

Development Notes

NOTE: This is a port of Comatose, which was last maintained in 2008. This branch of Comatose is built specifically for Rails 3. There is no legacy support.

  • Make comatose fully self-contained, which means removing acts_as_(tree|list)
  • Improve ComatoseAdminController to reduce number of DB calls for building the page tree
  • Comatose.configure needs to be an initializer (update docs)
  • Give access to all the default rails helpers to Comatose Pages by default?
  • UI refresh (nothing major, just some cleanup).
  • RESTful goodness.
  • Support XML/JSON responses from ComatoseController and ComatoseAdminController.
  • Support for static rendering (for generating sites like this blog).

Installation

Note: See the 'Upgrading' section if you already have an older version of the comatose plugin installed.

$ gem install comatose
$ rails generate comatose
$ rake db:migrate
$ rails server

Open your routes.rb and add the following:

routes_for_comatose

That's it, you're ready to go! You should be able to browse to http://127.0.0.1:3000/en/comatose and start adding pages to your CMS. Browsing to http://127.0.0.1:3000/en will render your comatose pages if routing doesn't match any of your controllers.

Configuration

You configure Comatose in your config/intializers/comatose.rb file. Here is an example configuration block:

Comatose.configure do |config|
  # Sets the text in the Admin UI's title area
  config.admin_title = "Site Content"
  config.admin_sub_title = "Content for the rest of us..."
end

Extra Credit

This gem is based on the work of Matt McCray, and other original Comatose contributers, as well as the following individuals, to whom Matt gave credit in the original README.markdown. Following are the specific libraries that are distributed with Comatose. If I've missed someone/something please let me know.

Feedback

I’ve released Comatose under the MIT license. Which basically means you can use it however you want.
