Typus: Admin Panel for Ruby on Rails applications
Typus is a control panel for Ruby on 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.
- Built-in Authentication and Access Control Lists.
- CRUD and custom actions for your models on a clean interface.
- Customizable and extensible templates.
- Integrated paperclip and dragonfly attachments viewer.
- Supports Rails 4
