I’ve been doing a side project lately that needed an embedable CMS for a client. The requirements were pretty simple: A few updateable areas that I could build into the app and possible dynamic content like pulling in the latest posts in the user forums. I didn’t feel like building it myself, so I did a few minutes of searching and came across Comatose.
It works perfectly for my client’s needs. I can use liquid or erb for text processing, so that fits in quite nicely with the multitude of other plugins I’m using. They also added the nice touch of being able to completely customize the admin interface, so it was dead simple to skin the interface to match what I already was doing for them and just add a quick route so it looks like part of the app. I owe the devs a beer.
