Manifest

Manifest is a Rails::Engine content management system, packaged as the RubyGem manifest-rails.

It was created out of frustration with the fact that many content management systems require hacks or breaking with their own conventions in order to implement true custom data types, and the fact that many content management systems require view-editing to be done from within the application itself, persisting view templates to the database.

In Manifest, custom data types are sets of Rails models, controllers, and views that Manifest has visibility of. This means that Manifest data types can either be generated with the built-in manifest:data_type generator, or can be constructed by hand and easily tied into Manifest.

Views in Manifest are views in Rails. Editing these views and templates is a matter of editing the public-facing views in app/views and any custom Manifest views in app/views/manifest.

Getting Started

Getting started with Manifest is as easy as:

  1. Add it to your Gemfile.
  2. Require it in your config/application.rb.
  3. Run the install generator and migrate the database.

Detailed instructions can be found in the Wiki on the Getting Started page.
