I've been using Nesta in a handful of Rails apps. I used to mount it as a
Rack app and fiddle around with trying to share view templates and CSS
between Rails and Sinatra, but it was messy.
Then Wynn told me how he'd written a Rails controller that used Nesta to
render the files in content/pages; because it's a Rails controller all
templates and CSS are automatically available. Extreme cunning!
I've packaged the idea up in a generator, that you can install with the
nesta-rails gem. I'm currently using it on two sites.
Installation instructions are in the README:
If try it you'll need to install nesta off the master branch on GitHub, as
nesta-rails depends on a patch that Micah submitted since 0.9.13 (I just
haven't had time to test and release 0.10.0 yet).
