Typus User Guide

Typus is a control panel for Rails applications to allow trusted users edit structured content.

It’s not a CMS with a full working system but it provides a part of the system: authentication, permissions and basic look and feel for your websites control panel. So using Rails with Typus lets you concentrate on your application instead of the bits to manage the system.

Typus is the "old latin" word for type which stands for:

A category of people or things having common characteristics.

Key Features:

  • Integrated authentication with Access Control Lists.
  • CRUD and custom actions for your models on a clean interface.
  • Internationalized interface.
  • Overridable and extensible templates.
  • Low memory footprint.
  • Tested with SQLite3, MySQL and PostgreSQL.
  • MIT License, the same as Rails.

You can directly participate in the support and development of Typus, including new features, by hiring our team to work on your project. We offer customization services for modules and extensions for a fee.
