Locomotive CMS

Locomotive is a simple but powerful CMS based on liquid templates and mongodb database. At my company (NoCoffee), we use it for our clients when they request a simple website.

If we have to give only 5 main features to describe our application, there will be:

  • managing as many websites as you want with one application instance
  • nice looking UI (see http://www.locomotivecms.com for some screenshots)
  • flexible content types
  • playing smoothly with Heroku and MongoHQ
  • inline editing (beta)

Strategy / Development status

We already developed a fully functional prototype in Rails 2.3.2 with both active record / mongomapper and it worked quite well. We are even using it for some client websites.
Now, our goal is to port our prototype to Rails 3 and migrate from mongomapper to mongoid. Besides, we put a lot of efforts to make it as robust as we can by writing better specs than we wrote for the prototype at first.

Gems

Here is a short list of main gems used in the application.

  • Rails 3.0.3
  • Mongoid 2.0.0.beta 19 (with MongoDB 1.6)
  • Liquid
  • Devise
  • Carrierwave
  • Haml
  • Delayed job
  • Jammit-s3
