Nesta (or alternative) in the wild

Nesta (or alternative) in the wild

Hello list,

this is admittedly slightly off-topic, but what do you use when you cannot
use Nesta? Say you have a client who doesn't want anything to do with the
command line, etc, but you want to use a CMS that's clean & simple, and
preferably Ruby-based. What would you do?

I'm particularly interested in systems that use text files for storage,
while still having an admin interface that's friendly to non-techies.

Thanx!

/James

Jekyll has a GitHub GUI-ish text editor in form of prose.io, by the
good folks at Development Seed:
